Lea T Exposed!


The androgynous look has always been quite a feature in the Fashion industry.

Boys who look like girls; girls who look like boys  But the latest modelling star to come out of Brazil is not like the others.

It's Lea T.

Yes, she's had her fair share of high-profile fashion campaigns including Givenchy, Vanity Fair and she's also lately posed nude in French Vogue with one hand cupped over her crotch.  But the startlingly beautiful 28 year old brunette with chiselled cheekbones and svelte figure, was actually born (and still is) a man.

“One night Tisci encouraged me to wear pumps to a party,” she recalled in French Vogue. “We went shopping for ‘drag queen’ shoes and we bleached my eyebrows. It was a revelation.”

Leandro Cerezo, the son of soccer star Toninho Cerezo is planning to have a full sex change this year.

I've got to say, he still looks like a bloke...or an ugly woman. In the Givenchy photo, that's def a bloke 2nd left, which is him.

"One night Tisci encouraged me to wear pumps to a party,” she recalled in French Vogue. “We went shopping for ‘drag queen’ shoes and we bleached my eyebrows. It was a revelation.”

I always thought that transexuals were women trapped inside a mans body or men in a womans body. He (she) seems to have decided one night to be a woman from the above quote. It's to hope he's makes his mind up before the cock-chop!

Obviously I've only read your post about this but a program on TV here not so long ago showed that transexuals had to have months of therapy to find out if the op was viable just in case it was a mistake. This 'model' bloke seems to have decided on a night out buying drag queen pumps and bleaching eyelashes that he wants to be a woman. It certainly is a scary world. :-)

Most designers like the look of 12 year old boys anyway, so why not have a boy as their girl model. How about some curves...real men like curves.

I've had a couple of transgendered patients - it's an intriguing phenomenon and the only "cure" is gender reassignment surgery But odd to see someone part-way through the process.

Well, isn't it true that most surgeons require a good deal of counseling and such before someone is determined a good candidate for transgender surgery?

If they are sure about it, why not?
