Sports Illustrated has revealed the first ever black and Asian transgender model to grace the pages of its annual Swimsuit Issue.
Though the iconic magazine doesn't launch until July, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Instagram account has been unveiling one model a day throughout the month of March — and this morning, they made waves with the announcement that Chicago-born model, dancer, actor, and activist Leyna Bloom, 27, is joining the likes of Lais Ribeiro and Josephine Skriver in the 2021 edition.
Leyna, who is the second trans model to pose for SI Swim, opened up to Good Morning America about her boundary-breaking accomplishment, gushing: 'I never imagined that I would be born in a time when something like this would happen for someone with my skin tone and for someone with my background.'

A homeless black he-bitch?! WTF?
Trans <> him or her
Trans = it
No pictures please.
Do not punish us with pictures.
Let the curious punish themselves by clicking on the link.
Not even with yours.
Ghaaa. Hard pass.
Don’t look Ethyl!
Nope. Sorry but SI will not achieve TRUE wokeness until they have a black, lesbian, transgender midget doing a photoshoot.
Seriously, we all knew this was coming. As predictable as the sunrise.
Well, it is still true that they have never had a black and Asian and HISPANIC transgender model.
Why so much hatred SI? Why you no like black and Asian and HISPANIC transgenders?????
Had to look. Don’t know why. But you can tell that she is a man in make up easily.
I think I met her, errr him, in a bar in Thailand about 25 years ago.
That’s why they call them queer.
And Sports Illustrated wonders why sales are at an all time low.
I don’t think Sports Illustrated’s fan base is going to want to look at a man in a woman’s bathing suit.
Can’t wait to see the comparative sales figures.
Another soiling of the sports world.
