Andreja Pejic, an Australian transgender model, recently graced the cover of GQ Portugal, marking a first for the publication. On Instagram, the blonde beauty wrote, "I’d say this cover represents me getting my long awaited revenge on all those boys who didn’t wanna hold hands in public when I was finding out about love for the first time."

Two different versions of the cover were created, both of which feature Andreja Pejic in an elegant dress with thin straps. In one, the strap is positioned off of her shoulder, to reveal part of a neutral-hued lace brassier. Accompanying the ensemble are a select few pieces of gold jewelry, which gives the look a more luxurious feel.

With GQ Portugal's decision to feature Andreja Pejic on its cover, it makes a progressive move towards transgender acceptance -- as the community has been excluded from many publications in the past, especially those that are geared towards heterosexual males.
