This is everything! The beautiful Caitlyn Jenner and legendary transgender actress Laverne Cox finally got a chance to bond at a private screening of Caitlyn’s new show, ‘I Am Cait!’
Caitlyn Jenner, 65, held a special screening of her brand new E! docuseries on July 19 and Laverne Cox, 31, came out to support her! Finally getting to meet Caitlyn was so exciting for Laverne that she posted a pic of the pair to her Instagram with a super sweet caption — see what she wrote!
“@caitlynjenner and I finally met in person at a special private advance screening of #IAmCait.#TransIsBeautiful #girlslikeus#caitlynjenner,” Laverne captioned the pic above! How stunning are those two ladies? We are obsessed with both of them and we cannot wait to see Caitlyn’s new show, which airs on E! at 8pm on July 26 — set your DVRs now!
Ok, back to Laverne and Cait! When Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair cover came out, Laverne was so blown away and moved that she took to her Tumblr to share her feelings. In her blog post, Laverne wrote:
I am so moved by all the love and support Caitlyn is receiving. It feels like a new day, indeed, when a trans person can present her authentic self to the world for the first time and be celebrated for it so universally. Many have commented on how gorgeous Caitlyn looks in her photos, how she is “slaying for the Gods.” I must echo these comments in the vernacular, “Yasss Gawd! Werk Caitlyn! Get it!”
