Isis King is proving there is life after America’s Next Top Model.

American Apparel has joined with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation (GLAAD), to feature a line of equity tees commemorating Pride month. America’s Next Top Model contestant Isis King is being featured as the face of the campaign, wearing t-shirts that read “Gay O.K.” and “Legalize Gay!”

The 26-year-old African-American model was the first transgender contestant to appear on Top Model, and is the first openly transgendered model to be featured in an American Apparel ad campaign.

“It’s time for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, to accept each other and thrive in harmony,” Marsha Brady, a creative director for American Apparel, said.
