Laverne Cox pays tribute to iconic black women in Cosmopolitan photoshoot


Laverne pays tribute to her personal super heroines, including Beyoncé, Tina Turner and Tracey Africa.

There's also a behind the scenes video which additionally includes Laverne as Leontyne Price and Josephine Baker.



"She was a black trans woman who modeled in the '70s and had cosmetics deals and a hair con­tract with Clairol—it was a big deal. People think, ‘Oh, this trans revolution is just start­ing,' but we've been around for a very long time. It's important to know that there's been a path blazed for me."


Tina inspires me because of her ferocity on stage and her incredible voice that carries residence, power and beauty in every note. She is simultaneously sexy and utterly empowered. She is truly one of the architects of Rock and roll.
