Caitlyn Jenner reached out to Laverne Coxon Twitter last night in order to thank her for her support, and Cox’s response will warm your heart.

Jenner tweeted, “you are fierce and fabulous! Your support means the world. Thank you for all that you do for the community. #TransIsBeautiful.”:

Cox replied shortly after, “My pleasure. Sending you lots of love always. #TransIsBeautiful.”

Cox has publicly shown her support for Jenner ever since the former Olympian’s 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April, and the release of her Vanity Fair cover earlier this month.

After Jenner’s 20/20 interview, Cox tweeted:

Additionally, she penned a moving note on Tumblr after Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover was revealed, commending her for her bravery and beauty. Additionally, she went into greater detail on the #TransIsBeautiful movement, and acknowledged there is more work to be done. She wrote in part:

I started #TransIsBeautiful as a way to celebrate all those things that make trans folks uniquely trans, those things that don’t necessarily align with cisnormative beauty standards. For me it is necessary everyday to celebrate every aspect of myself especially those things about myself that don’t align with other people’s ideas about what is beautiful. #TransIsBeautiful is about, whether you’re trans or not, celebrating all those things that make us uniquely ourselves. Most trans folks don’t have the privileges Caitlyn and I have now have. It is those trans folks we must continue to lift up, get them access to healthcare, jobs, housing, safe streets, safe schools and homes for our young people. We must lift up the stories of those most at risk, statistically trans people of color who are poor and working class. I have hoped over the past few years that the incredible love I have received from the public can translate to the lives of all trans folks. Trans folks of all races, gender expressions, ability, sexual orientations, classes, immigration status, employment status, transition status, genital status etc.. I hope, as I know Caitlyn does, that the love she is receiving can translate into changing hearts and minds about who all trans people are as well as shifting public policies to fully support the lives and well being of all of us. The struggle continues…
