I have so much admiration for Laverne Cox. I find it pretty darn exciting that she is out there in pop culture as a role model (or 'possibility model' as I think she once called herself). Thank you for the post!

From the writing on the intersection of gay and trans rights:

Laverne Cox: "I am a fan of unity across differences, because to tackle a long list of disparities – the ones that currently benefit the straight, white, cisgender, middle- and ruling-class patriarchy – requires broad coalitions to think, live, love and make policy differently."

*stands and applauds*
