For the first time, American Apparel, a gay friendly company already, has hired on a transgender model to be the face of a new national campaign. Isis King, former America's Next Top Model, will be seen by millions in ads that appear in pixel and print for AA's "Gay is O.K." campaign!
According to GLAAD:
Former America's Next Top Model contestant and openly transgender model Isis King is among those donning the Pride shirts in ads that will appear online and in print across the nation. Joining her in the ad campaign are four current and former GLAAD staff members, among others.
Fifteen percent of all proceeds from the shirts benefits GLAAD's work to share stories that build support for equality.
“We're super proud to support LGBT Pride again this year and partner with GLAAD in these events. It’s time for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, to accept each other and thrive in harmony. We hope everyone comes out and joins us," said Marsha Brady, a creative director for American Apparel.
"American Apparel is showing bold leadership by being among just a few companies to include transgender people in its national ads,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick. “Additionally, the company's statement that 'Gay is OK' will reach millions and send an important message in support of equality.”
