En el marco de la celebración del Día Internacional del Orgullo LGBT, Clavin Klein incorporó a la modelo en una campaña llamada, Proud in my Calvins, con la que pretende romper estereotipos en apoyo a la inclusión.

Tras participar en la campaña, la modelo afroamericana se convirtió en blanco de críticas en las redes sociales, pero ante el escarnio público escribió en su cuenta de Instagram un contundente mensaje en el que aseguró que con su logro abrió paso en la industria de la moda a otras personas como ella.

"He estado buscando toda mi vida estos momentos. Me cansé de buscarlos y entonces decidí crearlos, no para mí sino para el próximo soñador: gay, trans, discapacitado, gordo, negro y para todas estas estrellas que están esperando su momento para brillar", dijo.

Jones, de 28 años de edad, es integrante del movimiento internacional, 'Black Lives Matter', que lucha por los derechos de las personas afrodescendientes.

There are moments that I heard about, that help you forget when the world told you “Never” !!! . . There are these moments I heard about about that help you heal when the society has tried to beat you down , over and over again. . . There are these very real moments that I heard about that help you feel affirmed even when you don’t see yourself. . . I’ve been searching my whole life for those moments, I got tired of looking for those moments. . . So I decided to create them. Not for me but for the next dreamer, outcast, queer, trans, disabled, fat, beautiful black, piece of starlight waiting for their moment to shine. . . It has been such an honor and pleasure to sit in my most authentic self and present imagery of a body that far to often has been demonized, harassed , made to feel ugly and unworthy and even killed. . . I present this image ,myself and all that my body stands for to my community and chosen family, in hope that they see themselves more clearly than ever and further realize that they are worthy of celebration , of compassion , of love and gratitude. . . - Thank you to @ryanmcginleystudios and the @calvinklein family for a collaboration that will hopefully be a symbol of hope and love during these moments. BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER!! . . . . #calvinklein #blacklivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #transisbeautiful #queer #celebratemysize #actress #honormycurves #pride? #bodydiversity #soho #effyourbeautystandards #curvygirl #curvemodel #influencer #billboard #plussize #plusmodel #influencer #plussizemodel #bodypositive #swimwear #campaign #newyork #melanin #model #ad #sponsored

There were no real positive or uplifting representations of trans people in magazines, on television and in film. But there was something constantly telling me this is what I had to do to live in my truth, to essentially be happy. There was no other choice for me - it was either live my most authentic life or jump out of here. With the love and support of community and chosen family, I chose my life. I chose me over the industry that I loved, I chose me despite what society was telling me. There were people waiting for me, once I took the leap into this journey called Transition, standing there with open arms ready to show me love and compassion and respect. In those very crucial moments I realized that when you have an unshakeable self-love and a support system, nothing is too big to conquer. What I find now is that that I've done more since transition. I feel like when you're your true self, you create the most beautiful and honest art. I think the industry can recognize that and they have no choice but to celebrate and uplift that art on huge platforms. I'm glad that I chose me and everybody else kind of jumped on board as well.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @iamjarijones on Identity. #PROUDINMYCALVINS ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By @ryanmcginleystudios ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For further information on The Trevor Project, visit

Subconscious disregard isn’t uncommon for me. Me ....The “ strong black girls , or the girls who got it together “ it’s easy to observe us and think to yourself ... she’s good , she’s strong , she’s got it , she can handle it , she can take it ..... and some times, that’s true, but most times she’s managing , just getting by, failing at keeping it together and because she’s not the one that’s checked up on, or given reassurance, or protected or being stuck up for or even given as much love as a “ weak or delicate person “....... she has to muster that strength up herself....that’s what actually creates her toughness, her thick skin.... “the lack of “ creates the strong girl. . I don’t like being tough all the time or strong, or hard or strict. But it’s no longer a choice it’s a requirement to survive. One act of weakness from a Black Girl results in harm , heartbreak and even death. . . Sometimes I wish to collapse into arms that aren’t mine, feel warmth that isn’t mine, be saved by a voice that isn’t mine. Thick skin is a lot to carry alone sometimes. . . I hope one day strong black girls can rest their armor, take down their own walls, wipe the Vaseline off their faces , put their earrings back on, take their hair out of those tight ass ponytails, heal their screaming voices..... one day I hope. . . . . #transgender #trans #translivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #diversity #marginalized #givebackourland #thisisamerica #honormycurves #blacklivesmatter #bodydiversity #effyourbeautystandards #curvemodel #influencer #visiblyplussize #plussize #plusmodel ##plussizemodel #bodypositive #mentalhealth #transmodel #revolution #pride #newyork #spirit #blackgirlhairstyles #black
