ORIGINALLY POSTED 11th JUNE 2015
Hello *waves* future me here from the year 2020, just wanted to say, this diary entry includes images from other transgender girls vanity fair covers. I was going to include links to their Instagram accounts, which you can see within the images, but sadly, most of the accounts no longer exist:( But least we still have their covers :)
*end of future me*
If you’re Transgender, why not create yourself a #MyVanityFairCover and share the beauty of being Transgender with the world? :) This all came about after Caitlyn Jenner appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, and Crystal Frasier decided to create a Vanity Fair template so we could all make our own covers too.

“I’ve felt frustrated and useless and overwhelmed by opinions on transgender women and how we’re ‘supposed’ to look if we want to be taken seriously, but not all of us adhere to those standards. Not all of us want to. Not all of us can. Some of us do, but only out of fear. Some of us do but we aren’t sure why. And whether we fit those standards or not, we’re beautiful, and we all deserve to feel beautiful, and be acknowledged by the world.” – Crystal Frasier
Trans women should be celebrated, Crystal noted, no matter how they look, and especially regardless if they fit a largely stereotypical standard of beauty, as many have noted Jenner does. This inspired Crystal, and friend Jenn Dolari, to create a template for transgender girls all over the world to create their own Vanity Fair covers, using the hashtag #MyVanityFairCover and help “…show the world the myriad faces of the trans community.”
