Gina Rocero became the first transgender model from Asia for Playboy ©

We already wrote that for the first time the transgender model became Victoria's Secret. And now it became known that Playboy magazine introduced the girl of the August issue – she was the 35-year-old Gina Rosero from the Philippines. The choice is notable for the fact that she became the first transgender model from the Asia-Pacific region, who got into the cult magazine.

Being part of the cult Playboy family, which has long stood for freedom and individuality, is what I accept with great responsibility … As the first transgender model from the Asia-Pacific region, I am glad to show that dreams come true with my example. I also hope that everyone who is labeled "other" will feel that this is where their strength says Gina.

@People “The response has been so amazing. I’ve heard from people who had never bought a Playboy magazine before and to hear that they’re running to the nearest Barnes and Noble to pick up copies puts a smile on my face. I've been tagged on Instagram in videos of Filipina Titas (Aunties) looking at my centerfold, to messages from trans people who still can't come out to their partners, to my friends from childhood in the Philippines, I've heard from everybody. But most importantly, people keep telling me that because of my story and the Playmate visibility, they themselves feel seen and validated. ”@Playboy @ wiissa0

Just realizing that @carolinecossey ‘Tula’ 1991 shoot and my shoot with @playboy were both shot in celebration, surrounded by nature. You know just like what being trans is, IT’S NATURAL 😉

“One of my fav to do is making swimsuits out of leaves, fruits or flowers when I’m in the islands. For this shot, I made these Bunny Ears. I guess it was worth being stopped at every airport because of the wire cutters, wires that I was carrying in order to make these bunny ears ”@Playboy August 2019 Playmate @geenarocero Photographed by @ wiissa0

By the way, Rocero for a long time hid the fact that she was a transgender, as this could negatively affect her career, but in the end she made a cuming out in 2014, because, according to her, she was tired of living a double life.

The transgender girl’s modeling career began at age 21. During this time, she managed to collaborate with a number of fashion brands, to appear for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar India, as well as in the video for The Weekend The Knowing.

Note that the fact of the appearance of the transgender model in Playboy is not the first time. Hugh Hefner was the first publisher to put a transgender model on the cover back in the 80s (it was Caroline Cossey).

(Swipe) @carolinecossey I’ve had many teary eyed moments from being named @Playboy August Playmate. This has been a crazy full circle. As a young trans girl growing up in the Philippines, I remember hearing about ‘Tula’ being in the @ 007 movie and seeing her @playboy cover, I told my TransMom that I want to be just like her. To now be a Playboy Playmate is just Wild, ahh! This is the power of Visibility, to see yourself represented, it can provide hope and show what is possible. Seeing her allowed me to dream, imagined a better world and fueled my passion to reach for my dreams! To now be in communication with Caroline, her commenting on my posts (Swipe Slideshow) always puts a smile on my face. I’m emotional, I’m crying, im grateful, I’m full of Love. With sooo many attacks on trans lives, I will keep my passion burning to unapologetically live my dreams and share it with others! ❤️
