Being a model while trans....


Recommended Posts

I have always thought about either being a model for either VS, or opening my own clothing line called Saviour - by Christina Jameson. I've heard of a modeling Agency for transgender models called Slay, and I would like to look into that and get pro experience b4 I do any of the things above.

Go right ahead and do it if that is your dream.  The only drawback to warn you about is that you literally give up control of your body and your own tastes in how to show it off.  You also may not end up modeling the most elegant or stylish clothes since they would detract from the real product you are modeling for, so that is something else to be aware of. If you can accept that you might do fine.  I have younger friends who do it.

Would me being a p**n be better for me? It's my choice isn't it?


Looks like our word filter go you there, so I have no idea what you are saying, but don't try to go around it.  If you do professional modeling your contract says you no longer have a choice about the deal, but its your choice about whether to make the contract to get the job and the money.  A lot of people don't know that about it, but as a retired business analyst I had to find out about the industry, and was glad I was not in that industry.

Nope I did it. But it's my choice to be either a model or a pornstar.

Yes it is your choice but be aware of Community Rule 8



 Rule 8: All content posted or shared through TransPulse services must be appropriate for minors. We welcome members aged 13 to 18. As such, adult or pornographic content, nudity, underwear images, violence, gore, and other content not suitable for minors may not be posted anywhere to this service.


The realities of the Adult Entertainment acting profession though are even more harsh than the realities of commercial modeling as to control of your body.  It is an acting job on a set under the will of the producers and directors who are in control of your body as long as they are paying you.  Unless of course, you have the money to finance the entire production ready and on hand, which approaches at least a couple $M these days.  Go for it, but details of it cannot be discussed here partly our rules, and partly the NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) you have to sign as an artist.  Far from a dream job.  I have known and been present on sets where they are being filmed, and know the people who do work them.  Follow your dream though.


If you would really like to get into the entertainment field as a whole, my recommendation is to look into being a Background Artist for more mainline films and Television / Video work.  It is as boring in some ways as the AE, but more accessible at the minute.  There are Artist Rep Companies for Trans People out there who can help you get those jobs.  You have a few low paid gigs before you have to join a union, but its worth the dues for more steady employment, and believe it or not there are small production companies that are specializing in Trans artists even for non-Trans roles.

I know this is an old thread, but I work in the fashion industry and wanted to add my thoughts, as transgender models are just part of the industry, but there are a few "rules" that keep things running smoothly.


First of all, never consider going into the "adult entertainment industry" if you want there to be even a hope of getting into modeling later on.  Models have to keep a "wholesome" image for the companies they represent, either the designers, stores, or companies whose products/name they endorse.  So having that in your past is a no-no in this industry.


While I keep my own transgender history quiet as that's the way I prefer it, as part of the designing industry I deal with models a lot, and after doing so here in LA for 10 or so years now, I know a lot of them very well.  And yes, there are quite a few transgender models here.   it's not exactly easy to keep secret if you are pre-op and changing with other girls in what is largely a common area for shows for example, and those that are post-op probably started modeling when they were pre-op, as it's an industry where you need to start young to have much chance of making it.


But from what I've seen, the transgender models, whether pre-op or post-op, are just treated with the acceptance they deserve, and in our industry, if you have the look, you have the look and that's all that matters.  If you just keep the issue mostly just among the other models and those that need to know, there will be no problems.


So if anyone thinks they have the look to do it, by all means, give it a shot!

Thanks @Allison_Marie for posting

You’re career and situation are so interesting girl!

You must project confidence!

I wish a lot of things  😊


One is that I could be comfortable enough with myself and others.  

Btw-  if one DOESN'T have “the look”,

do people throw food at them?

      Continued prayers for you and your wife.    This is the Stanley Thermos I bought when I started working construction in 1977. It still keeps coffee hot, longer than the ones you can purchase today. The travel mug is a 20oz Walmart Bubba brand. We’re heading out for our annual trout fishing trip in Flippin, AR. I’ve gone from being the organizer of the trip, to sitting in the back seat with no responsibility other than overwatch of my family. Siblings, son, nieces and nephews.    Hugs from them all,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Well something is better than nothing. 859 for Federal I don't get why I don't get the full 2000? I'll take what I can get.

      @Mmindy looks like you had too much this morning 
    • Willow
      We arrived at the hospital at 5:30. Took her to prep about 6:10. I got just a few minutes with her about 7:30 between the surgical nurse and the nurse anesthetist. I asked about how long and was told she’d but out of surgery between 1:30 and 2:30. I fell asleep in a chair in the waiting area. Had lunch and here I sit.   Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

      Well bad news is that if you don't have any taxable income you don't get child tax credit. I'm going to keep doing my research.

      I am going to be a downer on this one since I am very wary of the "Hate Crimes Enhancement" features laws.  All crimes that are committed must have an intent proven for the First Degree (highest level), it is often referred to as "malice aforethought".  In law schools the whole concept takes a full semester to fully develop and be understood. (Been there, done that.) As a result, "Hate Crimes" are pretty confusing to juries since it is an amplifier to the already necessary malice of the base crime and there has been historic confusion that if they do not find the evidence of the Hate has been shown, they will then decide the person did not have the intent for the major crime -- I was on such a jury* -- and thus the conviction will not be even for the higher basic crime.    I would much rather the major crime of First Degree Murder in this case be found, and him being given the greatest sentence the prosecutor is looking for on that alone.   *The jury was deadlocked on the whole thing, but while we were deliberating the defendant plead out to the basic major crime which made several of us very relieved.

      You need to consult a different doctor, or maybe more than one to see if there are techniques to preserve the nerve tissue.  Breast reduction surgery has and does keep coming along since there are people seeking it beyond the Trans community for a variety of health reasons.  In any major surgery though there will be some sensation loss during the healing process, but even nerves do try to heal although they take longer than other tissue and if a nerve is cut, other nerves will try to "cover the area" but it will take a while for them to register with your brain as to what part they are covering which is a problem that other gender related surgeries also bring on.

      I remember hearing about this when it happened. It's sad when someone feels it's necessary to commit murder to cover up a relationship that they entered into freely, and apparently enjoyed on some level.

      @Willow, I hope all goes well with your wife's surgery!   Coffee #1 almost down, there will be more. I slept poorly last night. My Apple Watch sleep tracker for last night is more spiky than a porcupine; supposedly I was "awake" for over two hours last night.

      I'll bet that was a weight of your mind!   I think it would be endearing on your next date, when you get up to excuse yourself to "use the potty". 😁   I hope you have a great day! 💜Mae

      Congratulations on your big step through transition. Just think about if you want any more kids than freeze your sperm to use at a later date. Usually after 6 months of HRT your chances of getting someone pregnant is slim to none.
