Laverne Cox wants “gentlemen to slide into her DMs.”

The Orange is the New Black star only split from her boyfriend Kyle Draper four months ago, but she’s already on the hunt for a new man. She has even gone as fas as to ask eligible bachelors – preferably living in Los Angeles – to private message her on Instagram.

Taking to her Instagram account, she said: “Single lady here. It’s ok to slide into my DM’s gentlemen. Don’t be scared. Just be respectful. Los Angeles area preferred. Talk soon. #TransIsBeautiful (sic).”

In June, the 47-year-old actress announced that she and Kyle had gone their separate ways after two years together because they had grown apart.

She explained: “@thekyledraper and I have broken up. After much soul searching and tears from both of us, we have decided it’s time for us to go our separate ways. We decided we should make a public statement since our relationship was public in ways neither of us anticipated. This is that public statement. We know our relationship meant so much to so many people, especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well.”
