Isis has left America’s Next Top Model. In the last episode Isis, the first transgendered contestant on America’s Next Top Model was voted off. Isis, you have done the transgendered proud! Thank you for your courage, your beauty and for representing the transgender community at a national level.
Isis made it through three rounds as a transgender model on AMNT, and shared some of her transgender secrets with eonline. I am extremely happy to see Isis make it this far and I share some of the same feelings as others in the community. Isis – you handled the questions and inappropriate remarks with dignity, and you competed with heart.
From watching Isis, I learnt a few things about crossdressing and being who I am as a transgendered person. Most importantly about confidence – be confident, don’t let spiteful remarks from others throw you off. Confidence is sexy, confidence is appealing. Isis’ godfather said it best, “It’s not what you are, it’s who you are. It’s not what they think you are, it’s who you know you are inside… Unless you believe it, they’re not going to see it.”
I’m sure we’ll hear more from Isis in the future. You can see the last few minutes of the episode below, and hear some parting words from Isis.
