New opportunities for Filipino trans women models and those from other Asian countries have opened up. Slay Model Management’s Asia branch in Manila is a great example of this, enabling them to proudly showcase their identities on the catwalk.

At the opening of Slay’s Manila office in Taguig, its founder Cece Asuncion acknowledged that this endeavour wouldn’t have been possible five years ago. He recalled how hard it was even to find sponsors for the event.

Slay is the world’s first trans model agency and its models have been featured in some of the most prominent fashion magazines such as Vogue Paris, Vogue Scandinavia, Elle France and have been associated with many popular brands like Macy’s, Uber and Tinder.

Through the incredible success of movies such as “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” featuring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu, Asuncion said he is motivated to ride on the Asian wave in Hollywood.

Nevertheless, he emphasized that being transgender is not just a passing fad.

This launch is envisioned to be a symbol of trans representation, especially in the face of the Philippine Congress’s inaction on legislation that protects queer people from discrimination.

Unfortunately, Philippine laws currently do not permit transgender individuals to have their true identity reflected in official documents. Even the proposed SOGIE Bill, which aims to penalize discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression does not address this issue and provide a solution.
