Supermodel Andreja Pejić, who recently came out as a transgender woman, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a feature-length documentary on her life.
Pejić, an Australian national originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, spent time in a refugee camp near Belgrade during the Bosnian War.
The documentary Andrej(a) “will explore gender politics in-depth around the globe, and the beauty industry and its attitude towards diversity, will be a focal point.”
Writing on Kickstarter, Pejić explains:
“I hope that by sharing my humanity, pain, tears, laughter, joy, and biggest struggles on film, it will shed light on what it means to live as a transgender individual. I have always believed that differences between people should not equal divisions and I simply want to create something that could help build a bridge between my community and the rest of the world.”
