Laverne Cox is the First Transgender Individual to Get a Wax Figure

Madame Tussaud's gallery is known for honoring some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. While there is diversity among the wax figures, Laverne Cox will be the first transgender to be featured in the gallery. The Orange Is The New Black star has made a huge impact in the transgender community over the past years, and we couldn't be happier that she is being honored.

"I hope that this will be a source of inspiration for everyone who encounters it to believe that their dreams matter and are possible," says Laverne. She will be revealing the wax figure on June 26th, just before the 45th annual Pride Celebration & Parade weekend in San Francisco. Hopefully this inspires others to join in on equally representing transgender individuals—everywhere. Congrats Laverne!
