Victoria’s Secret has hired Brazilian transgender model Valentina Sampaio her agent confirmed Monday. News of her new position went viral this weekend after the supermodel posted on Instagram tagging the Loungerie company.

Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer of VS’s parent company stated in 2018 that they would not hire transgender or plus-sized models ‘as long as he had a job’, insinuating that those models were not women men fetishize about.

Oh boy, was he ever wrong!

Brazilian transgender women such as Valentina Sampaio are among the most beautiful in the world seemingly living in a world of luxury.

This perception contrasts starkly with reality.

Of the 379 transgender people murdered worldwide during 2018 nearly half were from Brazil(175) and the vast majority of those being women of color.

Valentina Sampaio who came out with L’Oréal Paris on Woman’s Day in 2016 is also a spokeswoman for Grazi Massafera, Taís Araújo, Juliana Paes, Isabeli Fontana, Emanuela de Paula, Ágatha Moreira, and Sophia Abrahão.
