Transgender Supermodel Andreja Pejic Comes Out for Trans Awareness
The world of fashion modeling is full of beauty, sexuality, mystery, and oftentimes ambiguous. Many model scouts search the globe for androgynous features to showcase designers’ haute couture masterpieces. So it’s only fitting that transgender supermodel Andreja Pejic, one of today’s most sought after models, has become the face of trans awareness, having lived her life with the ambiguity coveted by model scouts. Born Andrej Pejic, she began modeling in 2007, and soon graced the pages, covers, and runways of some of the biggest names in fashion. She opened up in exclusive interviews with the likes of People and Style magazines about her experiences as a transgender, her recent sex reassignment surgery, and her hope that her coming out as a transgender girl inspires other trans youth to never give up who they are, as well as to make society more aware of trans people.Andreja came out after her surgery when she posted a selfie of her new self with the message: “As a transgender woman I hope to show that after transition (a life-saving process) one can be happy and successful in their new chapter.” She also wants to bring awareness to trans people, like various other trans models like America’s Next Top Model Isis King, and Brazilian fashion model Lea T, who have paved the catwalks for future trans models. There are many like Andreja who deal with gender dysmorphia and society doesn’t help by stigmatizing transgenderism. Luckily, there are many laws that protect transgenders from discrimination, and the contemporary social climate is more accepting of transgenders. Andreja is using her story and the power of social media to bring major attention to transgender civil rights, which as part of LGBTQ revolution continues to gain recognition within the mainstream. Because of her exposure in the media as a fashion model (as well as sharing screen time with David Bowie), Andreja is a strong and beautiful poster girl for trans awareness. Andreja’s message is important and it echoes with all of the trans models on TSStream, from sexy transgenders like Superhotangel4u to AliciaTransgirl.
