Transgenders break into Brazil's modeling sector - Article Photos 6/7

In this Dec. 4, 2012 photo, Brazilian transgender model Felipa Tavares, left, and Sergio Mattos, director of the modeling agency 40 Graus Models, look at photos in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With her sharp features and long lanky silhouette, 26-year-old Tavares said she'd always harbored vague dreams of becoming a model. But growing up a boy in the interior of Minas Gerais state, far from Brazil's glitzy coastal metropoli of Rio and Sao Paulo, it always felt like something of a pipe dream, she said.
