Model and actor Leyna Bloom has made history by becoming the first transgender woman to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.

This comes after last July, the magazine featured its first transgender woman, model Valentina Sampaio, in the pages of Sports Illustrated, making way for a change. ‘This moment heals a lot of pain in the world.

We deserve this moment.’ Leyna wrote on her Instagram, after becoming the first-ever trans woman of color to be featured in the magazine.
