Talk about a long time coming! Actress and transgender activist Laverne Cox finally met her idol, Beyoncé.

Cox has been pretty upfront about her stanning for Queen B over the years, even paying tribute to the artist by recreating her iconic “Single Ladies” look in Cosmopolitan. (She also lost her mind when Beyoncé sent her a holiday card and sweatshirt in 2014.) At the 2017 Grammy’s on Sunday, the pair finally met face to face and Cox was ecstatic. 

This finally happened. I was so beside myself with joy, wonderment and awe of the majestic that is the queen I forgot to hold in my stomach and give you face. But I met #QueenBey y'all. #Grammys My new show @doubtcbs premieres Wednesday at 10pm only on #CBS

Cox introduced Lady Gaga and Metallica at the Grammy’s Sunday night, using her time on stage to draw attention to the upcoming transgender rights SCOTUS case surrounding Gavin Grimm.

We couldn’t be happier for you, Laverne!!
