La actriz trans Jari Jones es la nueva imagen de campaña de Clavin Klein. Para celebrar el mes del orgullo LGBTIQ+ la firma estadounidense decidió apostar por una persona que desafíe los parámetros establecidos y nadie mejor que Jones para eso.
La mujer se reconoce así misma como queer y lesbiana. Además, es partidaria del movimiento #BlackLivesMatter y forma parte de la comunidad afrodescendiente.
Proud in my Calvins es el nombre de la campaña que protagoniza y que busca promover la libertad en la diversidad para que cada persona pueda vivir cómo lo sienta.

There were no real positive or uplifting representations of trans people in magazines, on television and in film. But there was something constantly telling me this is what I had to do to live in my truth, to essentially be happy. There was no other choice for me – it was either live my most authentic life or jump out of here. With the love and support of community and chosen family, I chose my life. I chose me over the industry that I loved, I chose me despite what society was telling me. There were people waiting for me, once I took the leap into this journey called Transition, standing there with open arms ready to show me love and compassion and respect. In those very crucial moments I realized that when you have an unshakeable self-love and a support system, nothing is too big to conquer. What I find now is that that I’ve done more since transition. I feel like when you’re your true self, you create the most beautiful and honest art. I think the industry can recognize that and they have no choice but to celebrate and uplift that art on huge platforms. I’m glad that I chose me and everybody else kind of jumped on board as well.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @iamjarijones on Identity. #PROUDINMYCALVINS ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By @ryanmcginleystudios ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For further information on The Trevor Project, visit www.thetrevorproject.org/help
