Isis King, Transgender 'America's Next Top Model' Contestant, Makes American Apparel Ad Debut (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

"America's Next Top Model" alum Isis King has a new Tyra-free gig: fronting a line of Pride Month t-shirts for California retailer American Apparel.

Isis is the first trans person American Apparel has featured in their ads.
In 2008 King, the 25-year-old model from Maryland, became the first transgender model to participate on Tyra Banks' reality show "America's Next Top Model." This September, she returned for ANTM's "All-Stars" cycle, which featured 14 former competitors from the show's past casts.

As for the ads, well, compared to American Apparel's usual level of bawdiness, Isis' photo shoot is not too risque. Although, we suspect only models will have the confidence to wriggle into those turquoise spandex leggings.

King outshone many of her fellow "ANTM" alums by actually landing something of a modeling career following the show, walking in Baltimore Fashion Week. Tyra Banks personally helped finance King's sex reassignment surgery in 2009.

15% of proceeds from American Apparel's new tees will benefit GLAAD.
