Isis King Leaves America's Next Top Model but Continues to Make Great Strides for the Trans Community
Transgender Model Isis King was among the fan favorites who returned to the all-star edition of the popular CW program America's Next Top Model (ANTM), but was unfortunately voted off in last night's episode. All the same, the contributions Isis has made to transgender visibility on television this season should be celebrated.
The site guanabee.com recently published a post that included the line “Eva Longoria confronts a bitchy queen who fags out on her.” GLAAD reached out to explain how words and sentiments like these are used to bully LGBT youth in schools and how often these words accompany anti-gay violence. Rather than set an example and stand with LGBT readers, guanabee is defending the post.
GLAAD worked with producers of "The Insider" to highlight five prominent members of the transgender community in a segment responding to Chaz Bono's appearance on "Dancing with the Stars" this week.
