While the fashion industry still has long strides to make in terms of inclusivity and equality, recent years have seen the kind of progress that trans people once only dreamed of. It was just 10 years ago that Isis King became the first trans woman to compete on America’s Next Top Model, an arc on the show that ignited a larger dialogue about trans representation and visibility in American media. The decade since has seen a number of milestones for trans people in fashion: Major agencies like Next, IMG, and HEROES have grown their trans rosters by degrees, and in recent years, a number of major industry players, from Vogue to Marc Jacobs, have made history by including trans people in major public-facing covers and campaigns.
With New York Fashion Week behind us and London, Paris, and Milan Fashion Weeks carrying us through the rest of month, we’ve compiled a short list of some of our favorite trans models working today.
A fierce advocate in the trans community with beginnings in the Chicago ballroom scene, Leyna Bloom moved to New York in her late teens to dive into the world of modeling. Bloom has walked for Chromat and The Blonds, and has appeared on magazine covers such as Galore and Candy alongside other notable trans women like Janet Mock, Juliana Huxtable, and Carmen Carrera. Recently, she led a viral social media campaign to become the first trans woman of color to walk for Victoria's Secret. Her next step? Appearing in the upcoming film Fluidity alongside Nico Tortorella and James Chen.
Garnering magazine covers such as Attitude and Gay Times, and television spots including Strut and Pose, Laith Ashley is one to watch. In addition to being a model, Ashley is also a recording artist — and he’ll be dropping his first music video in the coming weeks.
In 2016, Teddy Quinlivan came out to the world as a trans woman in an interview with CNN-Style. Previously working in the industry as stealth, Quinlivan now uses her visibility in fashion to advocate on behalf of the larger trans community. She has spoken out on platforms like ELLE and Refinery 29 about the injustices trans people face. As a model, she has worked with labels including Vera Wang, Monse, Louis Vuitton, Alexandre Vauthier, and Moschino.
In 2017, Parisian model Ines Rau made history as the first out trans woman to appear as the Playmate centerfold in Playboy.

Not to be confused with The Challenge: Battle of the Exes.
Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes is the 6th season of the MTV reality game show, The Challenge (at the time known as Real World/Road Rules Challenge). The season is directly subsequent to the first Battle of the Seasons. Battle of the Sexes featured cast members from The Real World and Road Rules. The cast stayed in the Round Hill Hotel and Villas Resort near Montego Bay, Jamaica. A casting special, Battle of the Sexes: The Good, the Bad, and the Notorious, was aired on December 30, 2002. The show premiered on January 6, 2003 and concluded on May 12, 2003.
This is the first edition of the Battle of the Sexes series, with Battle of the Sexes 2 following in 2004–2005.
This season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge features the same format as Battle of the Seasons, but instead of dividing teams by Real World and Road Rules teams, they are instead divided by gender. Each mission gave points based on finish, either with a partner or individually. After each mission, the players with the most points cumulative from each team became the "Inner Circle" and voted off whoever they wanted to. The winner of each challenge would earn a "lifesaver" which could be given to a member of either team; the recipient of the "lifesaver" would enjoy total immunity from being voted out, which created many interesting situations. After thirty people were voted off, fifteen for both genders, the final three Girls and final three Guys would compete against each other in a final race, earning 0,000 for themselves, ,000 per teammate.

The reunion special, Hot and Bothered: The Battle of the Sexes Reunion, was aired live on May 12, 2003 and was hosted by the season's host Jonny Moseley.
- Before the show even began, Puck and David E. (both of whom were kicked out of their house by their roommates during their respective seasons) got into a very heated argument. The conflict ended with Puck spitting in David E.'s face, who then demanded that Puck be ejected from the show. Executive producer Jon Murray was torn with the decision to send Puck home after half of the cast rallied to keep Puck on the show, while the other half of the cast did not care if he went home. Puck then suggested that he would allow David E. to spit in his face as well, in an act of fairness. David E. agreed to go along with this at first, but later refused and instead went back to protesting that Puck be removed from the program. Murray was able to negotiate between the two and put an end to their squabble without resorting to Puck's removal from the game. However, during filming of the opening cast credits, David E. spat into Puck's face when the cast members were told to act out a tug of war game. This was edited out of the final cut. After the first challenge, David E. became outraged when he realized Puck was secretly convincing all the contestants to vote him off. He then threatened to leave the show. David E. would be the first male to be leave the show on his own accord.
- Melissa developed a deep animosity toward her former Real World cast member Julie over speaking arrangements that were made outside the show. Melissa had claimed that Julie misrepresented her services to a particular college which thereby prevented her from being booked. Melissa made it very clear that the two were no longer friends upon arriving to the show and she was very instrumental in getting Julie voted off first, even though she had received a high score in the mission. Their dispute continued outside the show where each side of the girls' argument was displayed onto their own respective websites, as well as the homepage for the show on MTV.
- Gladys was pregnant and was ultimately voted off third because of it. She was also forbidden to partake in the Dead Man's Drop mission, after hanging upside down could do substantial harm to her unborn child.
- Amaya planned to have the Inner Circle vote her out because she had a family crisis to attend to and didn't want to quit, but to the surprise of viewers who had followed her bitter feud with Veronica on a previous challenge, Veronica said she didn't want Amaya to leave and wouldn't vote her out. Melissa wrote on her blog that the two women had become friends since that challenge.
- Rachel was voted off by the Inner Circle (consisting of Ellen, Emily, and Ruthie) in the sixth episode, which many believed to be unfair since she did not have the lowest score on the scoreboard. She then proceeded to deliver a rant in which she declared, "This game is ugly, the inner circle is ugly, and I don't want to be a part of it anymore!"
- Puck and Ellen constantly came into conflict with one another, and Puck had even threatened to "kick her ass" at one point.
- A feud erupted between Veronica and Emily after Veronica allegedly slept with Emily's boyfriend James while he was helping her move into her apartment.
- Puck married his girlfriend, Betty, and mother of his infant son, Bogart, during the show. A special episode was aired that depicted the wedding, without any challenges or eliminations. Ellen, Tonya, Melissa, and Amaya were the only players in the game at that point who did not attend the wedding, abstaining out of protest because of the way Puck treated the women.
- Puck left the show after trashing the residence when his wife was detained at departure from Jamaica for not having her green card. Because the teams had to be symmetrical, the previously voted off male, Dan, was put back in the game. The women were thrilled to see him return, but he only lasted one round before getting voted out again.
- Emily's plotting against people that she did not like caused a large amount of controversy and resulted in both Rachel and Veronica's eliminations. Ellen and Ruthie would take most of the heat for these decisions, which made them very upset. Emily would later quit the show after her boyfriend, James, was voted off.
- When Veronica was voted off, Jamie tried to use his Life Saver to keep her in the game, but because he didn't inform Jonny of his choice, as well as openly admitting to choosing Blair beforehand, Veronica was sent home.
- During one of the missions, Antoine began to hit on one of the judges while still involved with the competition. He was lying down in a pool of water, so he was wearing his challenge issued speedo. The revealing swimsuit led the judge to tell Antoine that he had a "nice boner" while she couldn't stop laughing.
- Several of the women refused to participate in the "Battle of the Opposite Sexes" mission after they were insulted at the prospect of taking off their clothes, even though the rules stated they only had to remove an article of clothing if they answered a question incorrectly.
- In the final mission, titled "It Takes Three," the men had an early lead until they got to the second part of the challenge, which was a puzzle. Their difficulty with it led to the women catching up and even getting ahead of the men. After they left, the men went over to the women's puzzle and took it apart piece by piece, since it was still intact and put theirs together using the portions of the women's that had already been completed. Once finished, the men caught up with the women and ended up winning, completing the final challenge an hour ahead of the women. This had caused controversy after some viewed this as cheating, but it was not outlawed under the rules that were set, and was therefore not disallowed.
- Ruthie remarkably completed the Maximum Velocity mission in only four seconds, winning the mission, and cars, for the women.
- Ayanna quit the game after the "Collision Course" mission because she felt unappreciated by her team members. While she did not officially quit, she asked to be voted off, which the inner circle obliged.
- In spite of serious family problems plaguing him, Eric won the Life Saver at the "Leaky River" mission.
- After the "Human Aquarium" mission, James and Shane were tied in the points, leaving the vote on who would go home up to Life Saver recipient Antoine. He gave the Life Saver to Shane because James was blunt about his belief he deserved the spot, which Antoine didn't like.
- Had Antoine simply completed the "Maximum Velocity" mission, he would have made it to the final mission and shared in the 0,000 prize with the men. However, he DQ'ed, allowing Jamie the final spot.
- ^ a b Emily quit the game in Episode 13 because she did not want to participate in the game without her boyfriend James, who was just voted off by the Inner Circle. Genesis, who was originally voted off, was not eliminated and Lori, who had the fourth highest score was automatically put in the Inner Circle.
- ^ a b Jake quit the game in Episode 8, citing personal reasons.
- ^ a b c d Dan was originally voted off in Episode 6. However, when Puck quit the game, Dan was brought back because the teams needed to be symmetrical, and have the same number of players.
- ^ a b David E. quit the game on the first episode after coming into conflict with Puck, who had suggested David to be eliminated by the Inner Circle. David, who was already offended by Puck spitting on him, chose to leave the game.
- ^ Eric N. dedicated the lifesaver to his sister, who was in the hospital with an over-100 degree fever. The lifesaver was not used to save a contestant, which was allowed in the game.
- ^ Jamie did inform Jonny of who he was giving the life saver to prior to the elimination. After Veronica was eliminated, he said that he was about to give it to Blair but then gave it to Veronica. Since Jonny was never informed and Jamie made it clear that he changed his mind after the elimination, his original selection of Blair had to stay, thereby eliminating Veronica.
- ^ a b Blair refused the lifesaver in Episode 11 because he felt that he did not deserve to stay over the other Men who had scored higher than him on the scoreboard. Shane had refused the lifesaver in Episode 14 because he did not want Antoine to give up his spot in the final four.
