The German edition of Playboy has featured a transgender model on its cover for the very first time.
The historic title goes to Giuliana Farfalla, who features on the current edition of Playboy Germany. Farfalla, 21, is most known in Germany for appearing as a contestant on the German edition of Next Top Model, which is hosted by Heidi Klum.
Giuliana appeared on the show last year, during cycle 12, and is strongly rumoured to be back for the 13th run which is next in February 2018.
Speaking of the decision to feature Giuliana as a Playboy Germany cover star, editor-in-chief of the magazine, Florian Boitin, said of the model:
Giuliana Farfalla may be the first transsexual on the title of the German ‘Playboy’, but first and foremost she is a very special woman and beautiful evidence of how important the fight for the right to self-determination is.
If you’d like to see the cover image, which is obviously NSFW, then Giuliana posted the image on her instagram.
