LAITH ASHLEY BECOMES FIRST TRANS MODEL TO JOIN DRAG RACE PIT CREW

laith-ashley.pngLaith Ashley has become the first trans male model to join the RuPaul’s Drag Race pit crew.

The 28-year-old model is starring on the latest episode of season 10, titled Breastworld.

In the mini-challenge, the queens play a bootylicious game of Pants Down Bottoms Up.

It’s a pairs challenge that is guaranteed to get audiences very, very thirsty.

While it’s likely only for one episode, we’d love to see Laith in future seasons.

Laith has previously opened up about his gender identity to Huffington Post.

He said: ‘I want to show everyone that yes I am trans, but its not all that I am. The same goes for all trans people.

‘Everyone’s transition is their own; my story, my transition, my identity is my own. Everyone’s identity, trans or not, is their own.

‘Every trans person does not feel that they were trans from a young age, every trans does not feel they were born into the wrong body. It does not however, invalidate their feelings or their journey.

‘With Cait for example, people say “I’m not going to call her Caitlyn, I’ll call her Bruce.” To me, that’s the most disrespectful thing you can do.

‘Her transition has nothing to do with you and everything to do with her. Doing that is just invalidating her as a woman, and these things fester.’
