A model who appeared on two seasons of America’s Next Top Model and has modelled for big brands like American Apparel says she is struggling to find love because she was born in a male body. Isis King, also known as Isis Tsunami, transitioned in her early twenties and has had full reassignment surgery. The New Yorker was born in a male body, but knew at the age of four that she was different. The 28-year-old says her fame means people instantly know she’s transgender, before she has a chance to reveal her secret herself. Despite her astonishing looks and catwalk body, she says it is difficult to find a gentleman who accepts her and her transition. The 5ft 7” bombshell is also looking for new management to help manage her modelling and makeup career and dreams of becoming an actress.
