Emira D’Spain Becomes the First Black Trans Model to Work with Victoria’s Secret

Emira D’Spain, better known as XOXOEMIRA on social media, is making history with Victoria’s Secret.

The 25-year-old is the first Black transgender model to work with the popular lingerie brand. D’Spain is collaborating with them to make a Valentine’s TikTok showing users how to enjoy the day if they’re single.

In the video, she tries on different VS items, takes herself out to lunch, buys herself a bouquet of flowers and diamond earrings, and then ends the day by doing her skincare routine in a VS pink heart pajama set.

“My entire platform is built on confidence and self-love,” D’Spain told Page Six. “I want to empower young trans women and men around the world to show them that the beauty and fashion industries are changing. Especially if you are a person of color. I am so grateful to work with Victoria’s Secret and hope this paves the way for others after me.”

She also took to Instagram to express how honored she was to work with the brand.

“As a kid I only DREAMED being a part of Victoria’s Secret,” she wrote. “Valentina Sampaio paved the way and it’s such an honor to continue that legacy on the first day of Black History Month.”

“Peacemaker,” a new action superhero show from DC comics, has just confirmed that the lead, played by John Cena, is bisexual.

Peacemaker, “a man who fights for peace at any cost,” went through a pivotal scene in this week’s episode. Peacemaker’s father “The White Dragon” has hated him since he was a young boy. Viewers never knew why but finally got their answer.

“I knew you was unclean when you was born. And even more so when you killed your brother,” The White Dragon says. “I knew when you listened to that devil's music. I knew when you shaved your body like a woman. I knew when you slept with the whores of polluted blood! And men!”

This all but confirmed that Peacemaker is in fact bisexual, and in earlier episodes the showrunners alluded to the possibility. Over the past couple of years, DC Comics continues to introduce LGBT characters to its universe, to the delight of many fans. The season finale of “Peacemaker” airs this week on HBO and HBO Max.

Kat Dubrow, 15-year-old daughter of “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Heather Dubrow and celebrity plastic surgeon/Botched host Terry Dubrow, has come out as lesbian.  

In a recent article in People Magazine, she opened up about what it was like to come out in a loving and supportive family and will be sharing her story on this season of RHOC.

"We’ve got four kids, they are different genders, different sexualities, and all at interesting places in their lives, figuring out who they are and where they belong as humans," said Heather Dubrow. "I felt like our purpose is to keep those conversations going in other families."

In an effort to reduce the stigma behind coming out, Kat will be discussing her sexuality on the show.

"I was really stressed about it," Kat said about that experience. "But I’m really grateful that I have Max as an older sister, that she has already gone through all of this. Seeing my sister be so proud, and to see her be so comfortable with herself, it just makes me feel like I have nothing to worry about.”

The latest episode of RHOC is on Peacock.
