Do you remember the blogpost we did about androgynous models, these models who actually combine the characteristics of masculinity and femininity? I hope you enjoyed it!
Today we’ll focus on gender fluid models (I can imagine your interrogated face right now)! Genderfluidity is described as a mix of boy and girl. A person who is gender fluid may feel boy some days and girl other days, considering there are non-binary gender identities.
Not really known until last week, gender-fluidity catch peoples attention thanks to Ruby Rose and her video Break Free.
Ruby Rose is an australian model, DJ and recording artist (amongst other things) who was discovered in 2002 by joining the Girlfriend Model Search and getting to the second place. In 2009, she won the ASTRA Award for Favorite Female Personality and appeared as a guest judge in Australia’s Next Top Model. Her career was launched!
At 12, Ruby Rose came out as a lesbian and explained she suffered from verbal taunts and physical abuse from her schoolmates due to her sexuality. In 2008 and 2009, she was chosen as one of the “25 Most Influential Gay and Lesbian Australians” by Same Same, an Australian online gay and lesbian community.
The Australian model is also known for her tattoos, she has more than 35! 4 years after her collaboration with Maybelline, she inked their slogan “Maybe she’s born with it” across her chest, thanking the brand to have chosen her as an ambassador.
Last week, on July 22nd, Ruby Rose came out as a gender fluid saying: “I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up every day sort of gender neutral”. She is not identifying herself as either a woman or a man but her personal preference is to use female pronouns.
The 28-year-old Australian supermodel and DJ has released a short film, Break Free, dealing with the topic of gender identity. She explained to News Corp Australia: “Whether straight, gay, bi, trans … body image and identity can be a struggle for us all”. Don’t wait more and click on the video!
