Andrej pejic dating erika linder

At 14, she even went to a doctor who explained that she was too young to begin the transitioning process.For the time being, Pejic, who is signed to Storm Model Management, was forced to escape reality and the occasional childish taunt of “poofter” through her imagination: “I would dream about going to the store with my mum or dating the cutest boy at school – quite mundane things actually but for me they were the biggest dreams.”Pejic says that she was “lucky to have an early intervention” from both professionals and an understanding mother but admits that had this not been the case, she, like many of the trans community, might have suffered from depression and contemplated suicide. “It’s about proving my position in the industry and speaking out for equal rights and gaining respect in fashion for transgender models, because it doesn’t exist right now.”It’s a socially charged mission statement that you wouldn’t typically expect to hear from a model.However, there’s nothing typical about Andreja Pejic.

They’re the words of an activist who is spreading awareness through an autobiographical book, which will be published through Penguin in Australia early next year, and a documentary of her sex reassignment surgery.

Erika credits modeling for helping her to come out, although she’s never really had to make a statement about it publicly.

Her social media is very personal, and so photos with her girlfriend are included along videos of Erika playing her guitar or behind-the-scenes looks at her latest shoot.

Pejić co-starred in David Bowie’s music video for the hit single, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” alongside Tilda Swinton, Iselin Steiro, and Saskia de Brauw; she joined Taylor Swift’s squad, hitting the stage for the song ‘Style’ during the ‘1987’ tour.

Pejić became the first transgender woman to receive the GQ Woman of The Year award, as well as the first transgender model to speak at The Oxford Union, advocating for nuclear disarmament and peace - following in the footsteps of Anna Wintour and the Dalai Lama.
