“I stand be­fore you, a proud African Amer­i­can trans­gen­der woman from a work­ing class back­ground, raised by a sin­gle mother. I stand be­fore you, an artist, an ac­tress, a sis­ter, a daugh­ter, and I be­lieve it is im­por­tant to name the var­i­ous in­ter­sect­ing com­po­nents of my mul­ti­ple iden­ti­ties be­cause I am not just one thing and nei­ther are you.” Laverne Cox ad­dress­ing the crowds at the Women’s March in Los An­ge­les.
