Laverne Cox Celebrates Emmy Nomination at Justin Timberlake Concert

Justin Timberlake Exclusive NYC Performance at Hammerstein Ballroom

Laverne Cox who became the first Transgender to be nominated for an Emmy celebrated the milestone at a Justin Timberlake concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night.

Cast of OITNB

The 5-11 actor, who was born a biological man, met up with Orange is the New Black co-stars Selenis Leyva and Uzo Aduba at the grand opening of cosmetics store Kiehl’s Nolita earlier in the day. OITNB co-stars Leyva, Aduba and Natasha Lyonne were also nominated for the guest actress Emmy in a comedy series along with Cox, who wore a green minidress and towering black pumps to the concert.

Ironically, Cox is the only “woman” in the OITNB cast who is at risk for prostate cancer.

Not everyone was supportive of Cox’s nomination in a traditionally female category. A Chicago radio station mocked the transsexual actor, referring to Cox as a “tranny.”

Hip hop radio station WGCI was promoting John Legend‘s new music video, which features Cox.

The radio station tweeted, “Hehe Looks like John Legend has a tranny in his new video.”

    Speaking of prostates. My Job was talking about not covering BC :no: cause blah blah and men contributing and not beneficial to their help. I said “OK” well prostate exams aren’t beneficial to mine. SO take away BC and prostate exams. They don’t use BC and I don’t have a prostate why should I cover.
    Convo went into life saving measures and I politely outlined the benefits of BC besides preventing pregnancies . . . Erry man slowly :kona:

    I don’t like the look of this girl dude. :nono: Bandage dress with a belt that looks like 6pack holder! :facepalm: I don’t watch the show so I have no comment on acting skills!

    And what is the political correct way to refer to a transsexual? Don’t they call themselves Trannies? IDK about these things! I guess it is another one of those ” ‘We’ can say it, but ‘THEY’ can’t!”

    I’m done! Have a good day peeps! Holler at yall in another week or so…back to :scared:

THE WORLD CRAIG :eek: and I feel like I would be doing them and myself a disservice by not sharing this knowledge. I think I really got the answers that Sway didn’t have.
