“At times like these human beings can do one of two things: shut up or shout. Last April, when we decided to leave our cover white, we were convinced that silence was the right message of respect and reserve” says Vogue Italia’s Editor-in-Chief Emanuele Farneti. “Now, instead, with the onset of a new season that will in many ways be crucial, we think this is the moment to raise our voices and talk about hope and beauty. For the first time, we have shot and printed 100 covers. Each of them is dedicated to an individual protagonist. It is the portrait of a community that, having waited diligently, now finds itself making a fresh start”.
The creative director Ferdinando Verderi, who conceived the project, explains the process: “Almost a performance lasting days, with its succession of photo shoots and its artistic essentiality. The idea is very simple: more is more.” tells Verderi. “A challenge to the canons of quantity with which fashion has always measured itself. A celebration of diversity and uniqueness, a desire for rebirth that, once printed, becomes a collective experience. We shot the 100 cover stars individually in a simple studio in NY with Mark Borthwick, the historic Vogue Italia figure who returns after decades. We then asked each of them to tell us the story of their life in a minute. A project that aims to become a document of our times”. (source)

Indya Moore stars on the June cover of ELLE US and discusses her road to fame which has been fundamentally different than your average Hollywood starlet’s. As ELLE’s first trans cover star, Indya opens up about sex trafficking, hormone therapy, and her path to FX’s Pose.
On her family’s reaction when she started displaying feminine behaviors as a child: “Because I was assigned male at birth, they expected me to be masculine or to perform the way they thought young boys should perform. And I did not. They didn’t understand. They had never experienced what it was like to have a family member who was genderqueer.”
On being sex trafficked as a teenager to obtain hormone replacement therapy: “I didn’t understand what sex trafficking was at the time. The language I knew was that they were, basically, my pimps. I was just a kid.”
On getting her role on Pose: “I just knew my life was going to change. I knew I had a chance to teach the world something that would help more people to be safe.” Images courtesy of ELLE. (source)
