Ashley’s best friend, Wanzer, also attended the event. She believed in attending events like those and representing their gender, especially in hard times.

She valiantly advocated:

“The more rights we allow them to take from us, the more they’re going to push to take away. Everyone’s on the chopping block. This isn’t just about trans rights. It’s about all of our rights. It’s about human rights”

While talking about gender equality and transgender, people wanted to know how a person changed their gender and what the challenges were.

Understandably, it was difficult for Ashley to adjust to his new gender. He fought hard battles for his transition.

The Story of Transgender Model Laith Ashley

According to SportsKeeda, when Ashley was still a 17-year girl, he found himself having romantic feelings for a girl, and in front of his family, he came out as homosexual.

When Ashley was 19, he was unaware of being transgender, so he would call himself gay.

Once, he found a video on YouTube where guys documented a video of their transition, and Ashley could visualize himself in the video and knew the term transgender.

According to GQ Magazine, the Strut actor started his modeling work when one of his trans friends suggested attending the Barneys trans campaign.

Soon, one of his photographer friends had done his photoshoot, which went viral on Instagram.

Ashley got numerous negative messages which made him emotionally weak and exposed. He felt so bad and was about to delete his Instagram account. Eventually, he got encouragement from actress Laverne Cox.

After a few weeks, Ashley reposted the same image. Gradually he started to get support and love from the community.

Vogue said he got his major break when he appeared in Calvin Klein Briefs. He became the first-ever transgender man to be shot by David LaChapelle in a Diesel campaign.

After that, he never had to look back or feel ashamed of his gender as top and exclusive brands called him for collaborations.

The transgender actor has been living his lavish life with his family, and he never misses going to his gym as he wants to live a fit and healthy life.
