Laverne Cox gets sandwiched in between Selenis Leyva and Uzo Aduba while attending the Kiehl’s Nolita Grand Opening on Thursday (July 10) in New York City.

The ladies stepped out just hours after their series Orange Is The New Black was nominated for a fantastic nine awards at the 2014 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series!

Laverne and Uzo both were nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category along with their co-star Natasha Lyonne.

By getting a nomination, Laverne has become the first transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy. Amazing!

“I got to meet the president, I have an Emmy nomination and I can afford to redecorate my apartment. I have a publicist who connected this call. Everything is different,” Laverne told Time about receiving the nomination. “My whole life has changed. People recognize me wherever I go. Nothing is the same it was last year.”

FYI: Uzo is carrying a Blumera clutch.

Orange is the New Black's Laverne Cox Covers Time's Transgender Tipping Point Issue

Laverne Cox takes the cover of Time‘s Transgender Tipping Point magazine issue.

“What a wonderful bday present! Yes today is my birthday and I am on the cover of @TIME magazine. I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation’s history where it is no kinger acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded. This is for my trans siblings out there and for anyone who has ever been told that who you know yourself to be at your core is not legitimate. You are who you know yourselves to be. #girlslikeus #whereislavernecox #lavernehive” the Orange is the New Black actress wrote on her Facebook.

Here’s what she had to share:

On when she first began feeling like she might be transgendered: “I tell this story about third grade. My third grade teacher called my mom and said ‘Your son is going to end up in New Orleans wearing a dress.’ Up until that point I just thought that I was a girl and that there was no difference between girls and boys. I think in my imagination I thought that I would hit puberty and I would start turning into a girl.”

On what she’d like people to understand: “There’s not just one trans story. There’s not just one trans experience. And I think what they need to understand is that not everybody who is born feels that their gender identity is in alignment with what they’re assigned at birth, based on their genitalia. If someone needs to express their gender in a way that is different, that is okay, and they should not be denied healthcare. They should not be bullied. They don’t deserve to be victims of violence. … That’s what people need to understand, that it’s okay and that if you are uncomfortable with it, then you need to look at yourself.”
