Model Andreja Pejic has now come out as a transgender woman. On Friday, New York Daily News shared about this model coming out. This model has been on the covers of French Vogue and Elle. At the young age of 17, she knew that she felt like a female but she actually decided to model and never did anything about it.
She spoke out and said, "I was proud of my gender nonconforming career. But my biggest dream was to be comfortable in my own body. I have to be true to myself and the career is just going to have to fit around that." She has been modeling as a man and a woman both which can be a bit confusing. From now on, she will only model as a female no matter what.
Earlier this year she had sexual reassignment surgery. She spoke out on Facebook and said, "I think we all evolve as we get older and that's normal, but I like to think that my recent transition hasn't made me into a different individual. Same person, no difference at all, just a different sex."
She went on to say, "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 without having to alienate their past. Most importantly differences should not equal divisions; let's all stand together in union."
It is unknown how things will go for Andreja Pejic but hopefully it will go great. Going through this change is going to be hard for her to deal with of course. Hopefully everything goes well and everyone can continue to accept her no matter what.
