“Trans Joy Vacation in full affect,” the trailblazing transgender icon wrote in the caption before adding, “Vacay. Get you a wig that can do both. Love on yourself. Radiate the positive energy you want coming back to you.”

The posts were met with a collection of warm messages, including one fan who wrote, “You’re living your best life period!” with another adding, "Working it on vacation!"

Another called out the power of telling her truth. “Thanks to your visibility and bravery I recently came out to my friends and family, thank you for being a trans icon,” they wrote.

Miss J Alexander of America’s Next Top Model fame chimed in with, “I see you #Jaywalking with a @lavernecox twist serving bathing Body God damnit.”

“This bathsuit tho,” added Nicole Scherzinger while the account for Shondaland wrote, “We LIVE!”

The Orange is the New Black star has never been shy about the process of self-love, especially when it comes to her body.

"For me personally my body matters. How I exist in this body, feel in this body, is really important. But I am more than my body," she told Self magazine in 2018.

"Self love is a process," she continued. "It’s not a done deal. I don’t have this crystal ball, light-bulb moment and then all the problems are solved. It is a practice. It’s something I have to practice every single day."
