!! OMG, Dayamn! Trans Model Laith Ashley covers ‘Attitude Magazine’ !!


We would! — Trans model Laith Ashley covers ‘Attitude Magazine’ made history as the first F2M trans model to cover Attitude this month!

On his struggles/accepting himself:
“I would self-destruct, I would disappear because I didn’t want to be here. For a long time I prayed to God to let me die. I’d think I hate life, hate being trans, hate the world. I was very negative. I still struggle with that from time to time but remind myself I’m pretty blessed. I have a family who [is] supportive. They may not agree with who I am, but they do love me. I had the privilege of going to school. I have the privilege of this experience. I love who I see in the mirror now.”

On Internet trolls:
“People were really nasty for about three weeks. I just couldn’t stop reading the comments. I knew I shouldn’t have, but I kept reading and the more I read, the worse the comments got. I’ve learned that you can’t please everyone.”

Congrats to Laith, and to many more covers!

!! OMG, good for him: GLEE character comes out as a trans man in latest episode !!

In Glee‘s latest episode “Jagged Little Tapestry“, Coach Shannon Beiste, who is played by three-time Emmy nominee Dot Marie Jones, faced off with Chord Overstreet‘s acting skills to drop a doozy on him and coach Sue by announcing his coming out a transgender man (who still likes men) and that he is taking time off to begin a medical transition.

On why this was the right time for the story arc, Jones told The Hollywood Reporter, “Like it or not, it’s real life. I think Fox is amazing for putting this on broadcast television.”

Again — this type of inclusiveness and important discussion around these topics, that might not otherwise reach such a broad audience of young people, is super important! Kudos to the show for tackling the subject face-on! Check out the clip below!
