Playboy names its first ever transgender Playmate

Hugh Hefner Playboy Cover

The upcoming issue will have a lengthy tribute to Hugh, while also describing the history of the magazine.

It's the magazine known for pushing boundaries and Playboy has very publicly thrown its support behind the LGBTQ movement by announcing transgender model Ines Rau as their latest Playmate.

Playboy first featured a trans model, Carolyn "Tula" Cossey, in a pictorial back in 1991.

Ines isn't the only transgender model getting attention lately: French Vogue featured transgender model Valentina Sampaio on its cover in March and model and actress Hari Nef appeared on the cover of Elle UK past year.

In the Face of the mixed mind of the public, Cooper Hefner, son of Hugh Hefner is now at the head of Playboy, has justified his choice in the columns of the New York Times: "His selection is in line with the philosophy of the brand".

"It makes me even more proud and happy to have done that, because we need to make a mentality change".

Speaking about her new title, the 26-year-old told the magazine: "It's the most handsome compliment I've ever received". "It's like getting a giant bouquet of roses", she said.

Rau - who has conquered the couture runways, appeared in Vogue Italia and starred in a Balmain campaign so far in her short career - has an history of her own with Playboy. "I've seen a lot of hate comments, says his side Inès Rau. And women and men are two different things. see what I did there?" she wrote in a series of tweets". "But if I can help others to love themselves then it's worth it". She added she wants to be an action star. The 26-year-old model described the collaboration as a turning point in her life.

"It's a salvation to speak the truth about yourself, whether it's your gender, sexuality, whatever", Rau said in the interview.

The magazine's cover will pay homage to founder Hugh Hefner, who passed away in September.

The former adult entertainer told Fox News, "I just think it's a ridiculous attempt by Playboy to stay relevant". "I don't know how to clarify it".

The issue will hit newsstands on October 31. Some people feel like it is a big win for the transgender community and magazine in general, while other's feel uncomfortable with her being featured.

Playboy revealed the exciting news on their Instagram, along with a photo of Ines rocking white lingerie and sneakers while showing off her fantastic booty.
