Trans Girl Used in Car Ads: Good thing or same 'ol typecsasting?
19-year-old Ukrainian-born male model Stav Strashko – who identifies as transgender – struts in front of the camera, long hair flowing, and with a girlish demeanor turns to reveal her flat-chested maleness.
The tagline for the new Toyota Auris is ''not in trend, not casual, not for everyone.''
Why its great that trans-models are getting work, it is troubling when they get it to portray something off, something different.
