Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox finally met face to face.
The famed transgender women posed together for a photo pop on Sunday night at a special screening of Caitlyn’s upcoming E! series, I Am Cait. Cox shared the photo on Instagram with the caption:
“@caitlynjenner and I finally met in person at a special private advance screening of #IAmCait. #TransIsBeautiful #girlslikeus #caitlynjenner.”
During Jenner’s ESPY’s speech last week, she mentioned Cox as being someone to have transitioned and take the journey before she did. During an interview with Vanity Fair, Caitlyn even called Cox a “pioneer.”
“You look at some of the people, the pioneers in trying to get the message out,” she said, calling out famous trans women like Cox and Janet Mock. “Back in the 80’s I was alone and I’m following in their footsteps. They made it easier for me. I hope with my honesty I can make it easier for somebody else down the line.”
I Am Cait premieres on Sunday, July 26 on E!
