Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility, a day for the trans and gender non-conforming communities to celebrate their identity, what it means to be seen, and share their stories with the world.
We’re excited to introduce you all to Geena Rocero, trans model & producer, founder of genderproud, who has partnered with Participant Media to explain her POV on visibility for trans women’s voices live today on their Instagram Story! Check it out right now here.
Born in Manila, Geena Rocero moved to New York in 2005 to pursue a modeling career. Signed to Next Models, she has worked with Rimmel Cosmetics, Hanes, and many other fashion and beauty companies.
