Isis King, the transgendered contestant who competed on Cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model recently appeared on Larry King Live. The episode focused on the issues facing transgendered people and was cohosted by celebrity psychologist Dr. Drew.
Alexis Arquette also appears in the episode, along with a female-to-male transgender and a transgender mayor. The segment was inspired by Chaz Bono’s decision to come out as a transgendered person. Alexis is very articulate and compassionate on television and this entire episode is respectful and informative. I’m impressed, Larry King.
Isis appears around 11:25. She talks about why she doesn’t use the term transgender, what it was like to be transitioning on national television, her procedure and the healing process and more.
Isis seems so happy and content right now. This is a great interview and I’m glad her surgery is complete and she can focus on the next step in her life.
