Valentina Sampaio Makes History as Sports Illustrated’s First Trans Model



Valentina Sampaio has become the first trans model to appear in Sports Illustrated. She is hoping her time in the spotlight can shed on LGBTQIA people in her country of Brazil. “Brazil is a beautiful country, but it also hosts the highest number of violent crimes and murders against the trans community globally—three times that of the U.S.,” she says. “Being trans usually means facing closed doors to peoples’ hearts and minds.”
