Transgender model with cerebral palsy signed a contract with a model agency


One of the world’s leading modelling agencies has signed black, transgender and disabled model Aaron Philip. The teen, aged 17, says that her goal is to make the fashion industry more inclusive and to show that people can be beautiful in any color, with any physical ability and any gender identity. Philip’s agent told The New York Times last year that it’s now time for the rest of the world to admit that the beauty has no height, no weight and no shape, beauty is wider and deeper.Philip also said at the time that she doesn’t want her mission to end with her, saying she wants “to have an impact where other people like me are just going to be the industry, and like it’s nothing. I don’t want signings like mine to be a trend or a fad. I want careers for black, disabled, and trans models to be attainable and sustainable,” she added.
