On the Canadian fashion week debuted transgender model


TJ Jans makes transgender transition FtM and prefers gender-neutral pronoun, but the masculine pronouns will be used later in the text, as in the Russian language is not accepted to use “they” as a gender-neutral treatment to one person.

TJ Jans did not think of himself as a model, until he was invited to participate in the fashion show of the new collection Stanley Carroll. But life surprises: he was invited to demonstrate the clothing of the men’s collection on show in Edmonton.

Fireplace out TJ made in December 2014 and immediately declared that he was going to make the transition. Already next summer Jans started taking hormones.

The idea to invite Jans belongs Marcie Whitecotton-Carroll, Carroll’s wife and colleague Jans at the University of Alberta.
