American Apparel LGBT Pride Campaign 2012

If the name Isis King sounds familiar to you, it’s because you remember her as the girl who made history by being the first openly transgender contestant on Cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model  in 2008. King, whose gender transitioning was partly documented on the show, brought national attention to the lives and struggles of  transgender individuals. Since the show, she has worked hard in the modeling industry. Her resume includes being shot for Seventeen Magazine, Out Magazine, and US weekly.

This month, King is back in the headlines for being another first transgender model, this time for a campaign with American Apparel.

King graces billboards and prints for American Apparel’s LGBT Pride 2012 campaign in honor of LGBT Pride Month. The campaign features King in AA’s popular “Legalize Gay” tee, which made its debut in 2008 as a protest against California’s Prop 8, and in the new  LGBT pride tee shirt designs.

Also in tribute to LGBT Pride Month, AA has paired up with GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) to raise money for the organization; 15% of the proceeds will be donated to GLAAD by AA. GLAAD President, Herndon Graddick, said in their press release that “American Apparel is showing bold leadership by being among just a few companies to include transgender people in its national ads.”
