Trans icon Laverne Cox[1] has made the cover of TIME Magazine[2].  It’s the first time that a transgender person has made it to the front of the esteemed publication.

Cox gives a candid interview in the issue, and discusses her suicide attempts, her humiliating grade school experiences, her frequently-referenced Katie Couric confrontation[3] about genitalia, and her touching interaction with a bullied child in San Francisco.  You can read the entire piece here[4].
