The two stars finally met at a screening.

Laverne Cox has long been the face of transgender rights in the United States - she has carried much of the movement on her shoulders as she gracefully and poetically spoke about her own struggles and brought attention to the struggles of others. A bit of that burden was shifted when Caitlyn Jenner announced her transition, and Laverne has been an outspoken supporter of the athlete.

The Orange is the New Black star and the I Am Cait focus met at a screening of the former for the first time, and it was pretty much what everyone had hoped it would be. 

Though they had traded words using social media, they had never actually met until Sunday night, when they posed for photos at a special advance screening of I Am Cait, the eight-part docuseries about Jenner’s new life as a transgender woman, according to People magazine.

Laverne shared a photo of the gorgeous gals on her Instagram page:



n another photo, also posted by Cox, she posed with Jenner as well as a number of other prominent transgender rights activists:



The show, which focuses around Caitlyn's life after she has transitioned, it also aimed at giving more representation to the community. Caitlyn has never shied away from giving respect and attention where it belongs - on the struggle of trans women of color and trans youth, who face more struggles than a woman like Caitlyn generally would. Though there has been a lot of controversy over her transition and the subsequent acknowledgements that she has been given, she has remained graceful and strong.  I Am Cait premieres July 26 at 8 p.m. ET on E!.
