Lauren Foster has led a very interesting life since she transitioned in her native South Africa in her teens. She worked (and still does) as a print and runway fashion model walking runways in Europe, South America and the USA.
If her name is familiar to you trans younglings, she was on television on the Real Housewives Of Miami, had a five page VOGUE spread, starred in three art films directed by Joseph Lally, launched the GLAAD Miami Leadership Council with Omar Sharif, Jr and Marysol Patton and is currently writing her memoir entitled Just Another Girl.
And launching tomorrow is a revolutionary one stop shop website with the same name, that I was graciously given a preview of by Lauren entitled justanothergirl.org
The website not only has links to Lauren’s personal story, but information concerning facial feminization and SRS surgeons, trans specific legal information, and beauty tips. Basically it’s like GOOP for #GirlsLikeUs
“The goal was to set up a website with no graphic content that young people could access and show to their parents as part of their Trans 101 educational process,” said Lauren to me in a recent conversation we had about the launch.
Well, she succeeded in that goal, and you’ll get to see it when the site launches tomorrow.
I’m looking forward to reading her memoir when she’s completed it.
