Model Isis King reflects on impact of TV show, looking foward to transition

“In my everyday life, I never have issues, because I’m comfortable with myself. Once people realize that I’m no different, it makes them comfortable, too…. A lot of people told me this was going to be big. I was just hoping to start my career…. It wasn’t hard, because I knew that this is who I’ve always been. But in high school, nobody knew — I was living as a gay male, which wasn’t right.”
