The fashion and model industry has long been considered the epitome of beauty, style, and glamour. However, for a long time, this industry has been criticized for its lack of representation and inclusiveness of members of the LGBT community. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in visibility for transgender models, and the fashion world has finally begun to recognize and embrace the talents and beauty of transgender individuals.
The rise of transgender women models in the world has been nothing short of phenomenal. These models have not only broken-down barriers but have also paved the way for more transgender individuals to be accepted and embraced in the fashion industry. Some of the most wonderful transgender women models in the world include:
