AceShowbiz - Laverne Cox has urged men to "slide into my DM's" as she gets back into the dating game following her split from Kyle Draper earlier this year.
The "Orange Is the New Black" star took to her Instagram page recently to share a post encouraging potential suitors to be forward in their approach.
"Single lady here. It's ok to slide into my DM's gentlemen. Don't be scared. Just be respectful. Los Angeles area preferred. Talk soon. #TransIsBeautiful," she wrote.
The 35-year-old actress split from record label boss Kyle in June after two years of dating. Announcing their break-up at the time, Laverne posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram explaining that she hadn't given up on love despite the split.
"We know our relationship meant so much to so many people, especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well," she wrote.
"That hope, the hope for love has not waned for me in the face of this breakup but rather is fortified. Knowing that we are both capable of giving and receiving love with this level of kindness, respect, trust, affection, depth, and intensity has been so healing and life affirming for us both."
