Playboy Features First Transgender Playmate

Playboy Features First Transgender Playmate

In other groundbreaking news, the world of Playboy who recently lost it’s founding father Hugh Hefner has just announced that it will have it’s first ever transgender playmate. Ines Rau will grace the pages of Playboy in the November spread. Rau is a 26-year-old model from Paris, France, and she says…

“I will always fight for LGBTQ rights and women’s rights,” Rau tells Playboy, “but above everything else, my cause is the environment. Nothing touches me more than fighting against global warming. I was made to fight for the planet—the forest, the animals, the air. If I get famous, that’s my first battle.”

Naturally, when you do something different like this, there will always be backlash, but Playboy is fighting back on social media noting that in the 1991 September issue they featured transgender model Tula and prior to that they faced much resistance in 1965 with their first black Playmate. Facing adversity is certainly nothing new to this powerhouse magazine, and keeping up with the change in times is something they never seem to be afraid of and have no issues with embracing.
