Ashley Graham Tackles Gender Identity In New Episode Of Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘Fearless’

Ashley Graham is making her return to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”‘s web series “Fearless” a memorable one.

In a new episode of the series, the model sits down with Kaiden Blu, who identifies as transmasculine, gender non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them, to discuss their life after surgery, what it’s like to live in a world of adversity, and the importance of having a support system.

“It was awkward,” Kaiden says of coming out. “For my family, it wasn’t easy because they knew me as someone else… they wanted to blame something.”

But thankfully, that support system came in their girlfriend Stephanie.

“I want to give her so much credit for being open to me.”

To thank Kaiden for being so open, Graham and DeGeneres gifted them and Stephane a trip to Las Vegas and a pair of tickets to a taping of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s” coveted “12 Days of Giveaways”.

Graham’s six-episode original digital series, that hopes to help empower everyday people to be “totally, unapologetically fearless”, drops Fridays on EllenTube and YouTube.
