“If I’m going to have a public platform, I want to use it not just to elevate myself but to elevate issues that are important to me. I know a lot of people would rather not have me be the face of this thing…but what’s exciting about what’s happening now, culturally, is that there are so many more trans folks coming forward and saying, ‘This is who I am, this is my story, I will not be silent anymore, I will not be in hiding anymore,’ and that’s when a movement really happens, right?” - Laverne Cox, The Making of an Icon
"If you have a problem with people living their lives and being authentically who they are, you really should go and do some soul-searching."
Side note: For a moment there I thought she was going to say “You really should go fuck yourself” but I suppose this is a lot more graceful and polite :P
"Ashley is like the fun, carefree little sister I never had."
