Laverne Cox est la première femme trans en couverture du Vogue!

Laverne Cox est notre vedette du jour!

La star d'Orange Is The New Black est en couverture du magazine Vogue, ce mois-ci... et elle entre dans l'histoire du même coup! 

En effet, c'est la toute première fois que le magazine de mode met en lumière une femme trans sur sa page couverture! 

Le portrait de Laverne Cox est tout simplement renversant. Photographiée en noir et blanc, elle fixe la caméra d'un regard fier et puissant. 

Voici donc la couverture du Vogue de septembre 2019 et le message inspirant de l'actrice : 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I am so proud to be the first openly trans person to cover @britishvogue following in the footsteps of @valentts 's March 2017 @vogueparis cover and @indyamoore 's @teenvogue cover from earlier this year. ... I assert daily that trans is beautiful. I am so blessed that as an artist my job is to highlight and celebrate everyone's beautiful and imperfect humanity. We must not forget our shared humanity as we interact with each other, implement public policies, vote for elected officials. Even when we disagree we must still acknowledge each other's humanity. We must not continue to allow the tactics of divide and conquer, dehumanization to keep us from each other. Divide and conquer only serves those already in power. ... Policies in my country that seek to dehumanize trans people by making it legal to discriminate against us in homeless shelters, healthcare, and employment (see Aimee Stephens case going to the Supreme Court in October) must not be inacted. The ban against trans folks serving openly in our military must not stand. We need a senate and president that will pass and sign the Equality Act into law. Trans and nonbinary children must be protected. We must end the epidemic of violence against trans people. Trans people existing and thriving is not a threat to nontrans people existing and thriving. Let's not allow scarcity narratives to keep us from each other. We can choose love not fear today. ... Thank you @britishvogue @edward_enninful and HRH The Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal for this incredible honor. ...

« Je suis tellement fière d'être la première personne ouvertement trans en couverture du Vogue britannique! Je le dis chaque jour, être trans est magnifique. Je suis tellement chanceuse, en tant qu’artiste, de pouvoir mettre en lumière et célébrer la beauté et l’imperfection de l’humanité. [...] »

Laverne Cox a aussi remercié Meghan Markle de lui avoir offert cette occasion en or : la duchesse de Sussex est l'éditrice invitée de ce numéro.
