We have all gotten used to the fact that Playboy loves to shock its readers. The last issue caused a lot of commotion, since it features a transgender playmate on its cover. It is a first time a trans person is on the cover of this magazine in its 64-year history. Ines Rau posed nude for the November/December issue. She will appear in a full pictorial and the iconic centerfold. Rau already campaigned for Balmain, appeared in Vogue Italia and walked for various fashion designers. Ines will always be the first official transgender playmate, but she is not the first transgender model to appear in magazines. Many trans models appeared in fashion editorials and on TV shows. Here are several gorgeous ladies whose celebrity Snapchat names you should remember.
