The gorgeous Isis, seen here, is one of the 14 models competing to win over Tyra, Mr. Jay, Ms. J and all the other judges in the upcoming cycle of â€śAmericaâ€™s Next Top Model.â€ť Whatâ€™s so fab about her, other than the fact that she has legs for days and will surely give the other girls a run for their money? Sheâ€™s the first-ever transgender contestant in â€śTop Modelâ€ť history.
Us Weekly provided the exclusive scoop, so read it, or check out featured highlights below:
Hailing from Prince Georgeâ€™s County, Md., Isis identifies herself as â€śa woman born physically male.â€ť
Will she be a role model?
â€śI like to help people, but Iâ€™m here to follow my dreams,â€ť she tells Us.
The inclusion of Isis is being hailed by Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation President Neil Giuliano as â€śan unprecedented opportunity for a community that is underrepresented on television.
â€śWe applaud Tyra Banks and The CW for making this historic visibility of transgender people possible,â€ť Giuliano said.
Here, here! â€śAmericaâ€™s Next Top Modelâ€ť kicks off Sept. 3 on The CW.
