Does Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox Have a Boyfriend?
Orange Is the New Blackstar Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset) has never had an issue opening up about her personal experiences as a trans women, but she's tended to keep her general day-to-day private life, well, private. But in a recent interview with E!, she did dish a little about her dating life.
"I am managing to find time to date," Laverne told E!, which is pretty impressive given that she's super busy as an actress and activist. She really can do it all!
In fact, Laverne isn't just dating — she has a special someone.
That said, she makes it clear that she and her man haven't yet "defined" exactly what their relationship is, so we shouldn't call him her boyfriend. Still, Laverne says she and her man are "enjoying each other's company, and having a very good time, and laughing together and supporting each other." Sounds pretty great.
So, could wedding bells be in the future? Maybe not — and not just because it's too soon to say with this particular guy! Laverne admits that she's not sure if she ever wants to get married, explaining that she doesn't want kids, and she's not sure if she, "personally, need[s] that institution to validate whatever relationship I might find myself in."
