24. Laverne Cox
We love you, Laverne! The Orange is the New Black star is a strong advocate for LGBT rights and transgender awareness. In fact, she was honored by GLAAD for her advocacy for the transgender community in April 2014, and has claimed many firsts in the community as well. Most significantly, she was the first openly transgender woman to be nominated for an Emmy, as well as to appear on the cover of Time magazine.
