Reciprocity Foundation's program graduate breaks new ground as the first transgender contestant on America's Next Top Model

The Reciprocity Foundation is proud to announce that one of our recent program graduates, Isis, is a contestant on Season 11 of Tyra Banks' top rated show, America’s Next Top Model. Reciprocity partnered with ANTM during season 10, for a photo shoot aimed at educating Americans on youth homelessness. Isis was one of two transgender students whom Reciprocity selected to appear on the prime-time reality show. Reciprocity’s Executive Director, Taz Tagore said, “We wanted America to see that beauty doesn’t have any limitations.”

After appearing as a homeless youth model with other Reciprocity students Isis was invited to be a contestant on the show. She is the first transgender model selected for Tyra Banks' hit show. “Isis is a perfect example of how a person can transform their life when offered support, opportunity and coaching,” said Adam Bucko, Reciprocity’s Managing Director. He added, “Her success reaffirms the work of the Reciprocity Foundation.”
