Cuffing season isn’t done just yet: Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox is off the market.
The actress has been dating a mystery man for eight months that she met on Tinder, making her a part of the 1% who has found any sort of success on that app. Yas queen!
“Honestly, I’m a Tinder girl,” Cox tells Access Hollywood. “When I broke up with my ex, I went back on Tinder. i feel like if you want to date, you have to be on the apps. You have to be on the apps to be in the game.”
In the game indeed: the activist met her current boyfriend on Tinder and turned him into her Tinderoni — and everything is going great.
“It’s amazing,” she says. “I’m in love. It’s incredible.”
Her mystery beau has also reportedly met her parents, and vice versa. “Everybody gets along,” she says. “His family is amazing. My mom likes him. It’s good.”
Cox had recently shared that in the past, she was kept a secret by her boyfriends. “As a black transgender woman, I’ve often been kept a secret by the men I’ve dated,” she said in Cosmopolitan South Africa.
“So when my ex-boyfriend introduced me to his dad and invited me to spend Hanukkah with him and his family, it was the most special thing ever,” she continued. “Trans women deserve to be loved, out and in the open, and in the light.”
Well babe, here’s to you and your T-beau. May your love last forever — or until one of you gets bored with the other, and starts swiping left.
