Transgender visibility in media is at an all-time high. There are celebrities like Laverne Cox, who has a starring role on Netflix’s hugely popular Orange is the New Black. There have been award-winning movies and television shows focused around trans people including Tangerine and TLC’s I Am Jazz. At the Democratic National Convention this year, Sarah McBride made history by being the first out transgender person to address a major political party’s convention. 

But amidst all this progress, perhaps the less discussed shift is the obvious surge of transgender models walking the runway and booking campaigns. This past fashion week saw more transgender models booked than ever before. 

To get a peek into this ever-growing industry, Mic spoke with a number of trans models working today. In the previous edition of this series on trans modeling, the models talked about why 2017 will be their year. This time around, they speak out on why it’s so important for them to be seen right now.
