Meet Ines Rau; The Transgender Model Who Made Headlines With Tyson Beckford in Racy Photos

downloadBy: Krystle Crossman

Ines Rau says she has always known where her true place in the world was. As a woman. The Paris-born model underwent gender reassignment surgery at the young age of 16. She knew then that she wasn’t what she felt that she should be, so she did something about it. She became a model after a scout in Paris found her. She identifies her French background as French-North African.

Rau says that she gained courage to speak up about being a transgender model from the book I Am Woman by Tula. Rau said that she read the book twice. It helped her to realize that she shouldn’t be hiding who she truly was and should embrace what she wanted to become. And so she did. Her career is coming along nicely and she has a lot of great photoshoots that have recently been released. One of these projects is a shoot with supermodel Tyson Beckford where both models were nude and thoroughly sensual. She also did a shoot for Lurve Magazine as well as an artistic issue of American Playboy. These projects debuted in September and October.

Rau gave some advice to kids who are transgendered and are scared about showing who they really are on the inside and out. She told them that they need to follow their hearts. They know what the right life is for themselves and they shouldn’t be afraid to do what it is that they need to do to ensure they can live the life they wish. She also says that it is important that they talk to a specialist, or a few specialists, before they decide on changing their bodies to make sure it is what they really want and to make sure they are prepared. Rau says that she is happier than she has ever been and that is because she is living in the body that she feels that she was truly meant to have.

    D. Cesaire.. you may be born a woman but obviously not a LADY.. and i doubt that someone who spouts out so much thanks for GOD would be so hateful in your remarks. GOD loves all.. man, woman, animal and plant. And if you were educated you would realize that the spectrum of gender identities is a large and varied one.

    God has nothibg to do with YOUR opinions. God brought you in this world. you make the decision to speak and do whatever you choose. yes ..the model will always be a man …no surgery in the world will ever allow HIM to have a period or a child. ….thats a fact. the truth is that he is happy. let him enjoy his life in peace. no need to judge ….God will. until then find some love in your heart and time not to care. mazel nazel

    To all of the “female” negative critics here, I’m going to do my best to write this in english, because it is not my native language. I am a man and to me this beautiful creature is a woman. The possibility to have a baby doesn’t make you a woman, there are enough infertile biological women to prove that. Also having a period doesn’t make you more woman to me. Women who stop having their period don’t stop being a woman either. I would prefer to meet her than you all, unless she is whining and judging like you so-called “ladies” . Considering what SHE has been through, my guess is SHE is a lovely couragous woman trying to help others and that to me is a real lady.

      thank you for your words Corneel. I am a born woman and can only imagine how difficult it would be to be born into the wrong gender body. Your words express compassion and tolerance, something that is sorely needed in this world, from men and women alike.

    and I ‘d rather spend tax money on her surgery than on her ending up killing herself because of haters like you or ending up in psychiatry for the rest of her life where she probably would be if she would have continued living as a man , just to sooth your short-sighted ladybrains. ( and that might cost even more).
