Peep the amazingness that is Lea T., a transgendered Brazilian model making waves in the fashion industry, and appearing on the cover of the upcoming issue of Lurve magazine.  Lea, discovered by Riccardo Tisci, will appear on Oprah sometime in the near future, as reported this week.  It’s great to see the progressive steps like this in an industry often thought to be largely closed off to inclusion of minority groups.  If anything, the discussion and hopeful continued inclusion of transgendered beauties will begin a much needed dialogue on sexuality in the fashion industry and Lea has positioned herself as a beautiful catalyst.

Check out more photos of Lea T. after the jump.
