Dear love muffins,
Since I started my career, it’s always been important for me to give each opportunity my best — which includes presenting myself in a manner that I feel is true for me.
Now that BET and I have reached a settlement that I am more than pleased with, it was truly wonderful to be able to attend the BET Awards, walk the red carpet, and sit front row in the manner I originally intended.
Since my dust up with BET, I’m sure you love muffins have seen an increase in LGBT representation on the network. It makes my heart smile to know that I was a part of that change.
This is much bigger than being transgender, this is about everyone having the equal right to express themselves however they choose.
I would like to thank all my love muffins, BET, Debra Lee and Stephen Hill.
I would also like to send a special thank you to my sister, Laverne Cox, for being the legendary lady that she is and for being such a great gal pal!
We SLAYED! Point. Blank. Period.
Double Kisses xoxo!
I loved having @badgalriri seated next to me #frontrow at the #BETAwards, we were giggling the whole time! ???? @BET A photo posted by B. Scott (@lovebscott) on
