The noted actress graces the  February 2018 cover of  Cosmo South Africa’s #SayYesToLove issue.

This isn’t the first time Cox, 45, has pushed boundaries for the trans community and advocated for greater representation in Hollywood. In 2014, she became the first openly transgender Emmy nominee and was the first transgender person to cover Time magazine.  Laverne being cast in CBS’ Doubt also made her the first transgender person to play a transgender character in a recurring role on network television.
