Laverne Cox Opens Up About Caitlyn Jenner's Transition (Video)

Laverne Cox opened up about meeting and talking with Caitlyn Jenner over the past several months.

“Diverse representations of trans people in the media, I think, are so important — when I think about transitioning in my twenties as a black trans woman who was working-class and struggling to make it in New York City, it’s completely different than Caitlyn‘s very public experience,” Laverne, 31, said on the The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday (July 20). “She is such a sweet woman and she loves her family.”

Caitlyn and Laverne finally met in person and posted photos of their first meeting – check them out if you missed them!
