Did actress Laverne Cox inspire Madame Tussauds San Francisco to create the first transgender wax figure? Maybe. Maybe not. The answer will come out in a few weeks.
Though Madame Tussauds has not confirmed, the identity of its first transgender wax figure could be revealed later this month at a press conference being held on June 26, according to an e-mail sent to NBC Bay Area by a rep from Hard Rock Cafe, the official merchandise partner of the 2015 San Francisco Pride Celebration.
A rep for Madame Tussauds confirmed only that a member of the LGBT community will be honored in the near future.
