Editorial Excellence: French Vogue March '17

With the recent developments against transgender rights, it has become even more important to support those who have an open mind and bring the community to the forefront. 

New York Magazine recently ran an article around struggles of teenagers in transition: "When she heard about Trump’s decision to give the power to the states to decide if transgender teens can be forced to use restrooms that don’t match their gender identities, “It brought me to tears. I don’t know what to think or what to do now. My parents say, ‘Everything is going to be okay,’ but I know they don’t really know.- Jess Davis"

The March ’17 French Vogue features Valentina Sampaio on both cover and in editorial. She has also appeared on the cover of Elle Brazil. And the more this presence is commonplace the more their lives will be normalized. Acceptance will follow.
