Now we've got another Laverne debut to look forward to in June—Madame Tussauds' San Francisco Wax Museum has announced that Laverne Cox's figure will be the newest addition to their collection. It is the first transgender wax figure in the museum's history.

(Say it with us: Yasss!)

"I hope that this will be a source of inspiration for everyone who encounters it to believe that their dreams matter and are possible," Laverne said in a statement.

This is another huge accomplishment for the Orange Is the New Black star as she continues to highlight transgender issues and inspire us all.

The museum will reveal her figure on June 26 for Pride Weekend.
