Laverne Cox is on a roll! The Orange Is the New Black actress first appeared on the cover of Time magazine with the headline “The Transgender Tipping Point” and then she was the first transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy award. Now, Laverne has the honor of being the first transgender woman to have a wax figure at the iconic Madame Tussauds museum!
Laverne’s rightly earned wax figure will be on full display in San Francisco on June 26, during Pride Festival, according to Entertainment Weekly.
