Love you so much babe! @Regran_ed from @thekyledraper – Love is love. I couldn’t be prouder to be in love with this gorgeous, intelligent, and talented woman ❤️ I identify as cisgender and heterosexual, and I want the world to know how proud I am about my relationship with a trans woman. We need to rid society of shame associated with dating trans/gender nonconforming folks, and it starts with more cis/hetero individuals who are attracted to trans/gnc folks allowing their attraction to evolve into love and for that love to be celebrated publicly. I love you, @lavernecox 😍😘❤️ #transisbeautiful – #regrann

As for now, Laverne and Kyle haven’t married yet. But Kyle is most likely to be her husband in days to come.
