With Andreja Pejic's MUFE campaign, Hari Nef's IMG signing and Caitlyn Jenner everywhere, it's proving to truly be a historic time of trans-visibility -- and now we can add one more to list, as the estimable Laverne Cox will be the first transgender wax figure to be featured at Madame Tussauds. 

Cox herself will unveil the wax-terpiece on June 26 at Tussauds's SF location, right before San Francisco's annual Pride Weekend celebrations. Maybe wax is actually the new black.
