During an interview on CBS This Morning, Laverne Cox learned that she was the 2nd most popular cover story online according to Time Magazine editor Nancy Gibbs. The Pope was the most popular.
There was a moment in which Laverne corrected Gayle King when the presenter said that the Orange Is The New Black star had been ‘born a boy’.
Laverne was quick to correct her saying, ”I was assigned male at birth is the way I like to put it, because I think we’re born who we are and the gender thing is something someone imposes on you. And so I was assigned male at birth but I always felt like I was a girl.’
