      "Laverne Cox is arguably a transgender celebrity that I would always stan. As an actress, she never fails to to act brilliantly. I have watched her on Netflix and hands down to her. Anyway, I read online how she struggled back when she was just a kid and how she almost committed suicide. I am just so happy she was able to recover from it. "

If you wanna watch him act, he is also on The Bald and The Beautiful. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, IF YOU WANNA GET INSPIRED BY HOW HE BECAME A FULL TRANS MAN, THERE'S A DOCU FILM IN 2011 FEATURING HIM."
