The Fix with Michelle King

Teddy Quinlivan: Confronting Negative Stereotypes

May 28, 2019

We’ve heard dozens of powerful and inspiring stories on our podcast — but none like Teddy Quinlivan’s. Teddy is a model and outspoken advocate in the transgender community. At the age of 16, she transitioned from male to female, and came out as a transgender model on CNN in 2017. At just 24 years of age, Teddy has made her mark in the fashion industry, from starring in editorials for Vogue to InStyle, to modeling for top tier designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs.

There are no signs of Teddy slowing down, especially with her work to inspire visibility and action towards accepting trans identifying individuals.

In this episode, Teddy shares how each of us can learn about the challenges the transgender community faces and more importantly, what we can do to tackle these issues.
