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

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 think I was in @Carolyn Marie's range of about 12 months when I really could benefit from a bra and the motion control that @KathyLauren mentioned.   That said, I'm now at the 2 1/2-year HRT point, and I like that I can still choose to accentuate my boobs (by wearing a conventional bra), have gentle curves (by wearing a sports bra), or pretty much hide my boobs (by wearing a tight camisole under a shirt); this allows me freedom to dress as I want, depending on the occasion and place.  (I identify as non-binary, so I may have a bit different rationale than MtF folks.)   Astrid

      Given all the usual caveats, I'd say the 8-12 months is a good range for when "the girls" might become visible.   Carolyn Marie

      @Vidanjali--   Wait!  You're talented as an artist...and you're certainly a talented writer.  So...I've got a new career direction for you! Drum roll...ART CRITIC!!   (Ducking to avoid the first object near to you that you're throwing at me when you read this 🤪)   Have fun as you discern what lies ahead!   Astrid

      I'm feeling a little better today.  Susan is spot on here.  For me, right now, it is a matter of financial security.  I just want to be out of the business of paying interest.  I had to deal with paying a whole year of taxes in April and I'm just now recovering from that.  I need to build up some savings, or rather financial progress, before I can justify spending any more.   My plan today is to schedule an electrolysis session to real feel what that is like.  Then my thought is to wait about 2 years to jump into this.  At that time, I should have a new roof on my house and have my mortgage below $200K.  And if I can have a nice emergency fund/buffer in my finances, then I should be able to feel good about spending money on this venture.   I plan on doing a full transition and paying out of pocket for the whole thing.  If I do it at all that is.  I have a good career.  My career path has been shaky.  It's been a rough journey.  And whether I transition or not, I'm going to have a frugal retirement.  But I absolutely can afford to do this.  I've worked it out in my budgets.  I think that the more financially sound I become and the closer to retirement I get, the more I'll feel that this is the right path for me.  The activities that I've setup for myself in retirement are absolutely free and even have the possibility of earning income.  Although I could imagine having a better house, there is no need for that.  My house is wonderful and has architectural features.  I drive a $5,000 car and work from home.  I don't even need the car and have spent a good 20% of my adult life without a car.  I biked 700 miles last year.   I don't know what else I would spend my money on.  I just know that I don't want to be spending it on interest!   The big question is will I still want to do this in 2 years?  I'm curious about how healthy I'll feel in 2 years.  I'm a little nervous that HRT and surgery would be  bad for my health.  Are there stories on this site about people who have had bad outcomes with surgery?

      Remembering my grandfather's, the one I lost and the one I never met. Also, remembering friends of the family. But I don't usually reserve the holiday for time off, I usually always work.😔

      After I started HRT, it was about two months before the girls had grown enough that they were at risk of being noticeable.  By that time, I needed to wear a bra.  (Not for support: five years later, I still struggle to fill an A cup.  More for motion control.)  I was able to hide it under thick winter shirts, but as the weather warmed in spring, that became less of a possibility.    The final straw was playing in a concert band's spring concert.  The uniform was white top/black bottom.  There was no way to hide a bra under a white shirt, so I had to go out and buy a (man's) white tank top to go under it to hide the bra.    Shortly thereafter, I ended the charade and came out, exactly three months after starting HRT.

      I'd like to preface (that's how you spell that?!  Who knew?) this by saying that I know everyone responds differently, at different rates and with a staggering range of ultimate outcomes, so I would take any reply with a grain of salt.  That said, how long might someone have before they start to raise eyebrows amongst those aren't "in the know", but have known you for years.  And how long might someone have before... say... a lesbian leaning bisexual sister that married a trans man and has been close friends with several (trans men) but has (I'm relatively sure) had little interaction with trans women, (same for me, runs in the family I guess) start to ask questions, if at all?  Though I'm assuming that's unlikely.   Why is this one so hard to hit submit on!?  Huge wave of anxiety!

      I looked it up and they actually have an English version of their website! I thought they were French but they're just in Europe. As I said i didn't test their gym binder, but I quite like their extra-compressive one.

      @Mmindyis correct.  This goes back all the way to the Revolution.  Earlier, even.  On one side of my husband's family, every generation has served...all the way back to the colonial militia in Jamestown in the early 1600s.  Kind of interesting to study the history.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      To me, Memorial Day is about those who served and died, and also about those who survived but carried pain and trauma afterwards.  We should remember the cost of maintaining our way of life, and also the cost of careless politics.  And our leaders should see the cost, and be inspired to choose peace where possible.     My husband served in the National Guard. Won't talk about it.  His father was in the Army in Vietnam, and his mother was a military physician.  They don't talk about it.  There's something unspeakable that those in service go through, and often it is a family tradition.  This weekend, they're decorating the graves of military veterans... including friends and family.  While we're enjoying sports, barbecue, and time off....we enjoy it because others have secured this time and place for us.

      @LearningWhoIAm I really feel for you.  It must be awful to have such a negative reaction.    However, all is not lost.  Your husband cried because he loves you and your life together.  It is possible that love may prevail.     Based on what he said, it seems like he has two issues.  He's unable to absorb the idea that your personality isn't changing, and he is worried about being or appearing to be gay.  The first one can work itself out in time. The second may take some counseling, but he may be able to overcome that also.   IDK what vows you said at your wedding (if any).  Mine were the standard set of "for richer/poorer, in sickness/health, etc" until death.  Men often live by a code of honor, so returning to a specific promise like that might influence him, or at least begin a calmer discussion?

      Tragically, that's me always. My "tan" is a scattering of small freckles, no closer than one inch apart or I burn like a magnesium flare. The sun is NOT my friend.   If you don't already, I'm also going to suggest moisturizer. It's a girl's best friend for maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.   As always, the laughter is free. Glad you appreciated it sweetie!   Hugs!
