Isis King submits her 7 Questions Video to WeHappyTrans.com, and I’m honored that she’s allowed us into her life and journey to womanhood from the very beginning.
I’m also humbled to call her my dear sister.
Over the past three weeks, I had the pleasure of editing Isis King’s America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars blog posts for PEOPLE.com. In last night’s episode (in which she was sadly eliminated), Isis’s fellow All Star Camille McDonald (cycle 2) made it a point to say she, not Isis, is a “real woman.”
What exactly is a “real woman”? I genuinely wish we could get it in our heads that gender identity is a matter beyond body. It’s on the level of soul.
And no soul is “fake.”
