Laverne Cox was photographed by Alexei Hay looking good in a green gown with a deep plunge.

In the magazine she talks about finally getting acceptance in Hollywood, the Caitlyn Jenner phenomenon and more.

Read excerpts from her interview below.

On being a transgender: “I just wonder, am I allowed to be a human being?”

On Caitlyn Jenner’s transition in the media:  “This is why I’m so grateful that I had the luxury of transitioning in private. Because when you transition in the public eye, the transition becomes the story. I’m always disturbed when I see conversations about trans people that focus on surgery. But I believe Caitlyn will transcend this moment.”
