Inclusion is the watchword in today’s world and we love it!

See her answer a few questions on the set of cover shoot below.
It’s not my first #CosmoQuiz but it’s the first one I’ve taken on camera for @cosmopolitansa. 42 years ago this month @iambeverlyjohnson became the first black woman to appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. Thanks Ms. Johnson for paving the way for all of the black women who have followed you over the years on Cosmo covers. Thanks to trans models like @leat @andrejapejic @harinef @valentts @geenarocero @therealtraceyafrica and more who are changing beauty standards and breaking barriers for trans folks on the covers of fashion magazine’s all over the world. 🌸✨⚡️ #COSMOxLaverne #TransIsBeautiful ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 – #regrann
