Transgender actress on the cover of Italian Playboy
While the US playboy has decided to stop publishing pictures of nude ladies
, the Italian version of the magazine will not only continue to carry the ladies, but has decided to kick it up a notch by featuring transgender actress Vittoria Schisano
on the February cover.
In an interview with the newspaper La Repubblica Vittoria said: "Being on the cover today, after having been able to realize the dream of becoming physically a woman, takes on a double meaning for me. It's not a scalpel to make you woman, you are first in your soul."
While this is the first time the Italian Playboy has featured a Transgendered person, the US version featured Caroline Cossey
way back in 1981 and then again in 1991.
