Video: Transgender 'America's Next Top Model' Contestant Speaks, Works It
We're not the pious type, but when word came yesterday that one of the contestants on the next season of America's Next Top Model was transgender, we closed our eyes and thanked the Lord for people like Tyra Banks, who just don't quit. Entertainment Tonight has a video preview of the new season and shines the spotlight on the transgender contestant, 22-year-old Isis Tsunami. When Tyra saw Isis she thought she was "absolutely amazing" and just had to have her on ANTM, even after her staff told her there was something "a little different" about her. "I was born physically male, but mentally [and] everything else I was born female," Isis says. She adds being a woman wasn't a choice but who she's always been. "Some people might say that I'm transgender, some people might say transsexual. Personally I prefer 'born in the wrong body,'" she tells Tyra.
Tranny Models Who Made History
With trannies rising to prominence, from Rebecca Romijn's character on Ugly Betty to America's Next Top Model's newly announced first transgender contestant, Isis Tsunami, we had to ask, have any made it big in fashion? (And no, Christian Siriano's catchphrase doesn't count.) We dug deep into our fashion history books (and Google) and found four fabulous ladies who worked it well enough to make it to the big time.
