Laverne Cox wants you to slide into her DMs

Four months out of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Kyle Draper, Laverne Cox is making it clear that she’s single and ready to mingle.

The actress, best known for her Emmy-nominated role on Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black,” took to Instagram in a sultry video to let the masses know she’s open to meeting a special someone — in the LA area.

“Single lady here. It’s ok to slide into my DM’s gentlemen. Don’t be scared. Just be respectful,” Cox warned. ”Los Angeles area preferred. Talk soon. ❤❤❤🙏🤞 #TransIsBeautiful.”

Cox, 47, and Draper, 33, announced their spilt this June in a joint statement released on Instagram, saying they know what their relationship meant to several people, “especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well.”

Laverne continued, “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.”

Cox went on to share how “grateful” she was for their relationship and “every moment” they shared together. Still, both of them knew it was time to move on.

“We both want a breakup that honors and respects the quality of our relationship and the love we shared. It’s possible.”

@thekyledraper and I have broken up. After much soul searching and tears from both of us, we have decided it's time for us to go our separate ways. We decided we should make a public statement since our relationship was public in ways neither of us anticipated. This is that public statement. 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.  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. I am so grateful we were open to love and for every moment we had together. We have both grown in innumerable ways as a result. Now its just time to move on separately. We both want a breakup that honors and respects the quality of our relationship and the love we shared. Its possible.
