Ines Rau Makes History As First Transgender Playmate


Ines Rau makes history as first transgender Playmate

The model is well-known among those who follow fashion since she has appeared on runways, in a Balmain campaign and in Vogue as well as other publications.
There has been some backlash against featuring Rau, which Playboy has tried to counteract on social media, noting that transgender model Tula posed for the magazine in September 1991 and that the first black Playmate, Jennifer Jackson, faced resistance in 1965.
Playboy tweeted an image of Rau writing, “Standing on the right side of history.”
Cooper Hefner, Hugh’s son and an executive at the magazine, also tweeted a defense of the spread.
“We should collectively be fighting for a more open world, not one that promotes hatred and a lack of acceptance,” he wrote.
Rau was reportedly set to be the issue’s cover girl, but with the September 27 death of Hugh Hefner a portrait of the magazine’s founder made the cover instead.
