Los Angeles’ very own Cookie Fields is profiled in the November edition of ESSENCE Magazine.

Cookie was featured in the 2004 documentary “The Cookie Project” produced by Gay Black Female Magazine publisher Stephanie Wynn.

Cookie has led an amazing life.  From being a Los Angeles Police Officer, to serving as a Marine to being a father, husband, and now grandmother, this transsexual lesbian has taken one hell of a journey.

Kudos to Cookie and ESSENCE Magazine for again taking a bold step in showing diversity in our community.

The November edition of ESSENCE Magazine is on stands now!
