The last time I wrote anything on the blog about my sis Isis besides her birthday shoutout posts, I was discussing the quality time I spent with her when her movie Hello Forever premiered during our WorldFest film festival here in H-town.
Since then it has been pretty quiet for the woman who first exploded into our collective conscience when she became the first out trans contestant on America’s Next Top Model in 2010.
She subsequently walked runways, designed a collection in which she held a show for, spoken at college campuses on trans issues, sand has made some apperances in the New York area.
But just as she decided to take a little me time and cut back on some of that public schedule, Janet Mock and Laverne Cox gained attention. With Geena Rocero coming out last year and the Barney’s Campaign featuring trans models along with the rise of Andreja Pejic and Lea T, the time was right according to her publicist Leigha Hagood for Isis to reintroduce herself to mainstream America and remind folks she’s still here.
Isis is not only ready to get back into the modeling world, she also ready to make some moves in her acting career according to Hagood.
And it couldn’t happen to a nicer person. So looking forward to seeing what the next chapter in Isis’ life looks like.
