American Apparel has gotten a lot of flake in the past for being ostentatiously sexual with their advertising and company culture. On the other hand they’ve also made a strong stance for the LGBT community, especially with their latest move.
Saturday on Instagram they posted a casting call for transgender/transsexual models. Featuring a model wearing a “Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride,” tank top, they’re asking for ages 16 and up with no experience necessary. Interested parties should go to their Chelsea NYC location.
Comments on their page showed mix reaction to the call, with a lot of people asking for auditions to come to their cities:
“I mean this is cool but it doesn’t change how I feel. At least they’re doing something positive but I still hate their business practices.” And, “Come to Miami pleeeaseeeeee…!!”
