Model Turns To Twitter To Be First Trans Woman Of Color To Walk For Victoria's Secret




 

Trans model Leyna Bloom posted on Twitter over the weekend to pursue her latest goal: She's trying to be the first trans model of color ― or of any race ― to appear in a Victoria's Secret fashion show.

And the tweet took off like wildfire; it currently has over 15,000 retweets.

Bloom has been professionally modeling since 2014, appearing in major runway shows and making history on magazine covers (she was featured in Vogue India last year).

But she told Yahoo Lifestyle that Victoria's Secret was her "dream" company to work with.

"It's always been a dream for me, like so many others, not just trans - POC, all women, and some men even," she told the publication. "This is a platform that glorifies femininity. I always felt in my most natural state I am heavenly. For my trans sisters, regardless of color, this will be a moment for us all."

Bloom's campaign has continued to gather steam, with many supporters tweeting their well-wishes:
