LSDivas PRESENTS TRACEY ‘AFRICA’ NORMAN FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH!

image

Long before Caitlyn Jenner shocked the world when she transitioned from male, Olympic superstar; and before Laverne Cox began giving groundbreaking performances on Orange Is The New Black, Tracey ‘Africa’ Norman was the first Transgender model to be featured in major magazines and score lucrative product endorsements.

In the 1970s, Newark, New Jersey native, Tracey Norman quietly began transitioning after high school. As part of her “training” on becoming more feminine, Norman would pose as a fashion student and sneak into modelling casting calls to watch black models walk and copy their mannerisms. One day, she followed a group of black models into a building in what turned out to be a casting call for Italian Vogue.

Photographer, Irving Penn was ecstatic that he had just discovered the next Beverly Johnson. Tracey ended up working in Italy and Europe for years and even scored major product endorsement deals with Clairol and Ultra Sheen makeup. It wasn’t until many years later that the industry ‘caught on’ and her modelling career abruptly ended. But still stunning in her 60s, Tracey Norman paved the way for Trans women working in film, television and fashion today… Even if they never knew it!

COULD E! HAVE ANOTHER KARDASHIAN SPINOFF UP ITS SLEEVE? CAIT AND KRIS PARTY IT UP IN NEW ORLEANS!

Caitlyn and Kris Jenner were spotted filming for Caitlyn’s upcoming season of ‘I Am Cait’ in Louisiana this weekend. The two were caught tossing beads from a balcony on Bourbon St. and partying it up in some of the local bars.

Caitlyn, who arrived in town after paying her respects to victims of Trans violence on St. Louis, seems to be getting her friendship with her ex back on track. Perhaps we could see another spinoff with the two women traveling, Thelma and Louise style, across country.

This comes after Caitlyn has been criticized after announcing she would probably vote Republican in the next Presidential campaign. And rumors abound that she may even be dating. Say what you want, but Caitlyn sure does know how to make some headlines!

ROSE MCGOWAN AIN’T HAPPY ABOUT CAITLYN JENNER BEING WOMAN OF THE YEAR

ROSE MCGOWAN AIN’T HAPPY ABOUT CAITLYN JENNER BEING WOMAN OF THE YEAR

Rose McGowan joined the conversation about Caitlyn Jenner being named one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year. And the ‘Charmed’ actress ain’t too happy about that one bit; particularly the speech.

In her acceptance speech to the crowd and daughter Kylie Jenner, Caitlyn said, “the most difficult thing about being a woman is figuring out what to wear.” That did not go over well with Rose who wrote this in a Facebook post: “Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us- well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you. You’re a woman now? Well f—king learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege.”

McGowan was clearly feeling some kind of way, not unlike many who were upset at Jenner being honoured as a Woman of the Year. But let’s clarify that Caitlyn’s award was in the Transgender Champion category. Misty Copeland, Victoria Beckham and Reese Witherspoon were also Woman of the Year recepients. And perhaps we should look at it in context. Caitlyn hasn’t even been a woman for a year and has to live up to the Kardashian standards set by Kim and the Klan. So yeah, maybe for her that is the hardest thing about being a woman.

CAITLYN JENNER AND HER FINE ASS SECURITY GUARD CONFRONTED BY TRANSGENDER ACTIVISTS IN CHICAGO

Caitlyn Jenner is making stops all across the country after supporting daughter Kendall in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this week. She stopped off in Chicago to give a speech on Transgender issues at the 7th annual Speaker Series luncheon for Chicago House. The organization which provides HIV/AIDS support for members of the LGBT community chose Jenner to speak and help raise awareness for the Transgender community.

But it’s what happened outside of the event afterward that was tense and dramatic. Jenner was confronted by members of a group, ‘I Ain’t Cait,’ and attacked as not being a good representation of Trans issues for the community. Their claim, that because Jenner is wealthy, white and economically removed from the issues facing most Transgender women, she really can’t fully understand their plight.

We should be able to catch the nitty gritty during Season 2 of ‘I Am Cait’ because as we’ve learned, cameras were rolling!

CAITLYN JENNER STUNS ON GLAMOUR WOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARDS RED CARPET

image
When Glamour Magazine announced its Women Of The Year honorees, many were shocked that Caitlyn Jenner would be a recepient. Caitlyn has been racking up awards and honors since her transition earlier this year. And we couldn’t think of a better woman to represent the Transgender community at this year’s ceremony.

Even more impressive is Jenner’s consistently stunning fashion choices. This royal blue tuxedo inspired gown was made just for her by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott. The chic updo was a new hair look for Caitlyn and it definitely complimented her lithe frame.

Congratulations Caitlyn on being one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year!

Caitlyn Jenner came all the way through and stepped out for a night of fun in New York Monday evening. Cutting a lean but elegant figure in this Herve Leger black skirt and top, she has officially become our #TransCrushTuesday!

Caitlyn has pretty much been under the radar since she announced her transformation in an interview with Diane Sawyer. But then we got a glimpse of the Vanity Fair cover and accompanying photo shoot which revealed a startlingly attractive woman. And now Caitlyn has entered into full-fledged TILF territory.

Though beautiful for any age, this 65 year-old is certainly not wasting time getting her groove on. And why should she? She looks amazing and is even confident enough to have a hot-ass bodyguard to go along with her hot new look. Push through, Caitlyn!

Screenshot_2015-06-05-09-03-42-1Life just keeps getting better for Caitlyn Jenner! Just days after she debuted her new look with images from her cover and photo shoot with Vanity Fair, ESPN revealed that Jenner would be the recepient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs next month. The award, which honors courage in sports, couldn’t have gone to a more worthy recepient.

While sports has slowly begun to accept Gays and Lesbians into their culture, Trans men and women have all but gone unnoticed; not anymore! Caitlyn’s reveal and adjustment to her new life will be captured in the E! Reality Show, ‘I Am Cait’. The show debuts just a few days after the ESPYs take place July 16th.

BothBoth shows are expected to garner a record number of viewers and huge ratings. But the biggest question out there when ESPN announced Jenner’s award was posed by Caityln herself… “What the hell am I going to wear?” We cant wait to see what she’s going to wear either. But based on what we’ve seen from the Vanity Fair images, Caitlyn Jenner will certainly look stunning!

Remember during that Diane Sawyer interview with Bruce Jenner when he said that during all the years doing ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ that he was the one with the real story? Well, if the interview wasn’t jaw dropping enough, the recently revealed cover of July’s Vanity Fair has many mouths on the floor.

Just a day after Kim announced that she and Kanye would be welcoming a new sibling for North, Jenner flexed those reality, real story muscles with this and many other imageiimages from a Vanity Fair shoot. Enter Caitlyn Jenner who looks stunning in various evening dresses and the Marilyn Monroe inspired swimsuit on the cover. But it’s the image of her in a skin tight red dress and oversized shades in a sports car that is letting the world know that she is about to be the next social media star.

Over the past few months many have speculated about how and when Bruce Jenner would reveal the woman who has lived within after all these years. And while the vast majority of the Twitter, Instagram and social media comments were positive and supportive, there are always a few haters in the mix. Chiefly among them, were those mocking and joking that “Bruce out here trying to be a ‘Bad Bitch’…” Well, according to the images wevwewe’ve seen, Jenner IS going to be one Bad Bitch. Welcome to the world, Caitlyn Jenner!
