First Transgender model, Caroline Cossey has revealed in an interview with Cosmopolitan that her life fell apart, and she pushed away the modelling world after her ordeal.

She recalled an interview with Howard Stern, during which he mocked her for being transgender, and came out in drag.

Cossey said,“Everything changed when I went on Howard Stern".

He came out dressed up as a woman in order to interview me and joked that he’d gone through the surgery, and I didn’t know he’d do any of that. He also made a joke about cutting off his penis and then handed me a sausage, and I just felt like, I don’t need this. I need to keep my sanity”, she added.

She also opened up about wanting to undergo gender reassignment surgery, but said she feared long waiting lists and psychological evaluations.

Caroline said she attempted suicide, “I woke up in my bathroom in vomit. I just felt ashamed and embarrassed".

And then at a certain point, I just got sick of being ashamed of something I’d never had any control over, which was my assigned gender".

She revealed she received “gimmicky” roles due to her trans status and had to turned her back on the entertainment world.

Not before she was asked to return to the paged of Playboy in 1991, and became the first out trans model to pose.

“I wanted to do it because I wanted to show all the jocks and heterosexual Playboy readers that transgender people could be sexy and attractive and help them lose the preconceived notions they had about us", She added.

Caroline added, “Your gender is not about what’s between your legs. I know many transgender people are bothered by genitals that don’t match their gender identity, but I would like them to know that their genitalia doesn’t define their gender".
