Wow! Transgender Laverne Cox is spending time with a hunky new boyfriend. The Orange Is The New Black star (who was born a man) is dating theater and film company director Jono Freedrix, reports Us Weekly.
The couple were spotted together at the Screen Actors Guild awards on Saturday, where the 31-year-old actress and her cast mates won for outstanding performance in a comedy ensemble series.
The pair were also seen getting close at the Netflix after-party, dancing and kissing. Jono is the president of The Virtual Stage film and theater company based in Vancouver.
It is not known how long they have been dating, although they were pictured together at the 2014 Emmy awards.
The transgender activist told E! last year that she was seeing someone, but had no plans to marry or have children, but still believed in love.
‘I very much believe in love,’ she said.
‘I want to be in love and in a partnership with a man.. I see myself in love and in a fierce partnership with someone who loves and respects me.’
Way to go, Lavern. Continue to see more photos.
