Trans Model Appears At London Fashion Week


Gibson, who has been undergoing hormone replacement therapy for the past two years, took part in the Catwalk for Change campaign for Models for Diversity, a fashion showcase that promotes diversity within the fashion industry.

After starting hormone replacement therapy which dramatically altered her physique, the 32 year-old left her job working at a pub in West Sussex to persue a modelling career.

They say you have not really made it as a model until you walk along the catwalk in a sheer dress with your nipples showing, and here I was doing it in my first show! Luckily, thanks to the hormones, I have quite a nice pair now. I didn’t have time to get nervous, I was just so excited, said Gibson.

Speaking about being transgender, Gibson said, ‘To me it is just something that I have to do. It is like having two horns on my head that I have to get rid of to become the person that I have always felt I was inside.’
