Leyna Bloom is a transgender model who has been published in several spreads and walked in numerous fashion shows. Her dreams and aspirations have pushed her to not only succeeded but also crave more.
Bloom has conquered a lot professionally, but now, she has her eyes set on one prize–walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. If Bloom is selected to become an “angel,” she would be the first transgender woman of color to walk in the show. Bloom sent out a tweet recently to raise awareness and start her own “campaign” to be selected.

Bloom recently told Refinery 29:
I’m a person of color, first, a woman, second, the third, filled with possibilities, and lastly, I’m trans — each of them giving me strength.
Her tweet has been seen over 75,000 times and has a ton of support.
it’s what she deserves

Victoria’s Secret has yet to comment on the campaign, but it looks to me like Bloom is a natural.
