Isis King

American Apparel

Isis King is proving she's an America's Next Top Model all-star indeed.

After becoming the first transgender model to appear on the show (and the subsequent All-Star edition), the 26-year-old catwalker is taking her reality success to new heights, scoring a major gig with American Apparel as its first transgender model.

King is featured in the brand's new ad campaign/T-shirt line commemorating Pride Month, striking a fierce pose in silver hot pants and a "Legalize Gay!" T-shirt.

The former reality star joined four current and former GLAAD staff members for the campaign, sporting the Pride shirts for ads that will appear nationwide online and in print.

"We're super proud to support LGBT Pride again this year and partner with GLAAD in these events," Marsha Brady, a creative director for American Apparel, said. "It's time for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, to accept each other and thrive in harmony. We hope everyone comes out and joins us."

And what did GLAAD have to say about the partnership?

"American Apparel is showing bold leadership by being among just a few companies to include transgender people in its national ads," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick went on in a statement. "Additionally, the company's statement that 'Gay is OK' will reach millions and send an important message in support of equality."

Fifteen percent of the Pride T-shirt proceeds will be donated to the org.
