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.”

What a dream to be judged by my body of work and not the body I was born in.
Isis King's 'Top Model' Blog for PEOPLE.com

I had the honor of editing Isis King’s very first America’s Next Top Model blog entry for PEOPLE.com this morning. Grateful that I work for a company that allows me to assist in elevating trans visibility in the media.
