The world's first all-trans modeling agency is coming to the United States
Apple Model Management L.A. is ready to trans-form the modeling industry as the world’s first agency to represent all-transgender models.

Last year, Apple Model Management in Thailand set a new standard for the fashion industry as an agency welcoming a number of transgender models in addition to cis men and women. 

Now, the agency is coming to Los Angeles, where Apple Model Management L.A. will exclusively represent trans men and women. 

“We see trans individuals as beautiful,” says L.A. agency director Cecilio Asuncion. “Our strong commitment to developing them as successful models is never about quantifying or qualifying their gender. It’s never a question of if they are women or men, it’s about their passion and commitment to being the best possible models they can be.”

Asuncion, whose award winning documentary film What’s the T? explores the lives of transgender women, points out that there have been trans models throughout history such as Candy Darling, Caroline Cossey (aka Tula), Octavia Saint Laurent, and now Andreja Pejic. “But their full potential was never reached because of the stigma the community-at-large had towards the trans community,” he says. “This has to change.“

The fashion world is a pretty huge indicator of the people we look up to (often literally, if they’re onstage!), and this is a big deal.

It’s not Messi running toward a yawning goal net thinking “must score, must score.” It’s the entire history of football, the gods of football drawing him magnetically to the net with one refrain in their celestial minds: “This is the guy we invented football for … this is the man we want to dominate the history of goal scoring for all time”. 

And so Messi, hearing that celestial siren-song, just did what he does, and we see beauty.

In the GO timeline, Terezi said she thought she might be happier in a timeline where she had let Vriska live, even if it meant fading into nothing.

In the retcon timeline, Terezi was eaten up with guilt for something she didn’t do and said she thought she might feel more whole if she could remember more.

Poor Terezi. Always thinking you’ll be happier on the other side. But it’s not about what you know or don’t know or did or didn’t do, not really. It’s about being sick and looking for a reason why. 

All-Transgender Modeling Agency Set to Launch

Apple Model Management L.A. is ready to trans-form the modeling industry as the world’s first agency to represent all-transgender models.

In November 2014, Thailand’s Apple Model Management became the first agency in the world to represent transgender models in addition to its stable cisgender (non-trans) male and female models. This summer, Apple Model Management L.A. will open its doors to exclusively represent transgender models.  

“We see trans individuals as beautiful,” says L.A. agency director Cecilio Asuncion. “Our strong commitment to developing them as successful models is never about quantifying or qualifying their gender. It’s never a question of if they are women or men, it’s about their passion and commitment to being the best possible models they can be.” 

With six transgender women already on the Apple roster, the agency is seeking additional transgender male and female models. Trans women who are 5'8" and up and trans men who are 6’ and up and are interested in being represented may apply by following the application guidelines at the Apple Model Management website. .
