‘I think I look better than I’ve ever looked, and I’ve evolved so much. I’m turning 50 with some wisdom. I know some things, which is really nice. Could I know more? Absolutely. But I’m moving through the world with integrity, and that’s something I’m proud of,’ Laverne said in the April edition of Health Magazine.

‘It’s a miracle that I’m a black transgender woman from Mobile, Alabama, who has managed to not just survive, but thrive. I’ve had a lot of guilt around that – because I’m aware that there are a lot of black trans people who are suffering. I’ve had to let go of that. I’m insanely grateful. I have to enjoy it – life is too short.’
