ANTM Transgender Model

I made a personal promise to myself when deciding to make this blog not to be a follower of Perez Hilton and become a gossip-monger. Unfortunately, every so often the time comes when vows must be broken and the time is now. I am unashamedly a lover of all things ANTM (Americas Next Top Model) and this season they truly have thrown a curve ball into the mix. For the first time on the series there will be a Transgender contestant. Isis who comes from George's County, Maryland, describes herself as "a woman born physically male." So far Tyra Banks has been applauded for making this "historic visibility of transgender people possible" by Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) president Neil Giuliano. I personally am all for diversifying the catwalks so good luck to her and bring on Cycle 11.
