Naomi Campbell may be a flame-throwing, phone-chucking, lipstick-disapproving horror in heels, but give the diva credit where credit is due. At the 2014 GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend, the supe — in full fro, no less — voiced her support of transgender people in fashion, particularly transgender models.
“I encourage even more diversity in the fashion world, and that includes welcoming trans models to the runways,” she said, name-checking Lea T and Carmen Carrera. “The truth is, LGBT culture and fashion go hand in hand. They flourish in light of making bold and brave statements.”
It’s been a good few weeks for the trans community. Earlier this month, Geena Rocero came out as a trans model in a moving TED talk.
