After Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover was revealed, Ms Cox wrote a blog post criticising the focus on trans people’s appearances, and whether they conform to gender expectations.

She said previously of Jenner’s public coming out: “I think a lot of people tuned in expecting to see a spectacle, and they tuned in and saw a profoundly nuanced, complicated, beautiful human being.

“I had spoken to [Caitlyn] several months back, and the same person I had spoken to on the phone, who really just loves their children so much and wants their family to be happy, was the person I saw on television.”
