Munroe Bergdorf Becomes First Trans Model To Star in L'Oréal UK Campaign

Munroe Bergdorf is beautiful, and she’s also a groundbreaker for being the first trans woman to star in a L’Oréal Paris UK campaign.

The DJ, activist and model was announced as one of the faces of the beauty line’s latest True Match campaign.

In her first video, Bergdorf said it was the lack of representation for women like her that inspired her to get involved in modeling.

‘I definitely set out to empower girls like me,’ Bergdorf said.

‘I think that our history definitely wasn’t being told.

‘Not many people know that it was trans women of color that fought for gay rights, that started the Stonewall Riots, which eventually led to the gay rights movement.’

Munroe stars in the campaign alongside 27 other women, including Neelam Gill, singer and X Factor star Cheryl, and acid attack victim and TV presenter Katie Piper.

She adds it’s ‘great’ L’Oréal are doing the campaign because diversity is hugely important to her and it’s why she continues to break down barriers.

‘Makeup has been a way of me reflection of how I feel inside and it’s a direct expression of who I am,’ she said.

In being a part of this campaign, Bergdorf joins trans models like Hari Nef, who’s worked with L’Oréal in the US, and Andreja Pejic, who worked for Make Up For Ever.
