Model Leyna Bloom posted on Twitter over the weekend to pursue her latest goal: She’s trying to be the first trans model to appear in a Victoria’s Secret fashion show. And the tweet took off like wildfire; it currently has over 15,000 retweets. Bloom has been professionally modeling since 2014, appearing in major runway shows and making history on magazine covers but says Victoria’s Secret is her “dream” company to work with. “It’s always been a dream for me, like so many others, not just trans, people of color, all women, and some men even,” she told the publication. “This is a platform that glorifies femininity. For my trans sisters, regardless of color, this will be a moment for us all.” Bloom’s campaign has continued to gather steam, with many supporters tweeting their well-wishes. Victoria’s Secret has been under fire for years for the brand’s lack of diversity, particularly in their fashion shows, when it comes to size, race and more. Fellow model Ashley Graham has been an active proponent for the show to have more of a variance in model sizes. Victoria’s Secret has not commented.
