Andreja Pejic Is the First Transgender Model on a 'GQ' Cover

It’s a historic moment.

Transgender model Andreja Pejic debuted her GQ Portugal cover and it was a historic milestone to celebrate. She’s the only transgender to ever grace the publication’s cover.

She wrote on her Instagram:

“I’d say this cover represents me getting my long awaited revenge on all those boys who didn’t wanna hold hands in public when I was finding out about love for the first time.”

Pejic was labeled an androgynous supermodel up until her gender reassignment surgery in 2014. She’s since been an active voice in the trans community making her way onto American Vogue in in 2015 and is slated to release a highly-anticipated documentary about her transition titled Andrej(A) in 2017 or 2018. Take a behind the scenes look at the shoot here.
