Meet Isis, a 22 year old transgendered post-op from Prince George's County in Maryland. She will be one of the 14 contestants on this upcoming season's America's Next Top Model, which begins September 3rd 2008.
Isis says "My cards were dealt differently." Adding that she identifies herself as "a woman born physically male." She also states "I like to help people, but I'm here to follow my dreams."
GLAAD president Neil Giuliano as "an unprecedented opportunity for a community that is underrepresented on television."
"We applaud Tyra Banks and The CW for making this historic visibility of transgender people possible." Giuliano has said.
