Laverne Cox on the November 2018 Cover of Self Magazine

On lovig herself:
Loving myself is a practice. It is something that I must cultivate and it is something that I must consciously do or it will go away.

On self care:
Working out, eating well, getting enough sleep, saying no so I can balance work with pleasure and work with activism—and activism is part of my work, but having a more balanced life. I still struggle with that.

On her passion for the arts:
When my teacher said you should take that child out of those dance classes, my mother said no. It seems really basic but that's an incredible privilege because there are a lot of kids who were assigned male at birth who wanted to study dance and whose parents say no. Performing was this wonderful release for me as a kid. Having music in my head and movement in my body was the thing that sort of transported me from Mobile, Alabama, where I was being bullied [...] where no one really understood me, to a space of possibility and dreams and my imagination.
