Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox, posed nude for the new issue of Allure magazine. The 30-year-old transgender actress rocked the shoot but said she’d initially said no to posing nude.
“I said no initially, thought about it, and said no again,’ she told the publication. “But I’m a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for the communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful.”
