Trans model Andreja Pejic has SRS, now identifies as female

 andreja pejicLEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — In addition, she spells her name differently — it’s Andreja, not Andrej. Pejic’s surgery was earlier this year, putting an end to her career as an androgyne model. In the future she’ll be female in her photos, erasing a previous ambiguity which boosted her modelling career. The publication of many topless photos triggered controversies about whether the photos should be run in mainstream periodicals.

Pejic told Style magazine that she now identifies as female. She’s also sharing her earlier struggles with gender identity because she believes it can help people. She says her career is now going to have to fall in place around her female identity.

Pejic in Style when asked what she would like to say to the general public: “I would like them to understand that we are people. We’re human beings, and this is a human life. This is reality for us, and all we ask for is acceptance and validation for what we say that we are. It’s a basic human right.”

I appreciated Pejic’s previous gender ambiguity because it presented means of showing  how absurd classification by gender can be. But now that she has found peace within herself, I’m happy for her!
