Naomi Campbell: I wouldn’t be a model if it wasn’t for gay men

British Vogue

The international supermodel made the remarks during a conversation with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, for British Vogue.

Naomi began by asking Sadiq Khan why he remains a strong advocate for LGBT+ rights.

“As far as the LGBT+ communities are concerned, I think it’s a source of embarrassment that I’m the first ever mayor to walk the entire Pride event in London. Last year,” he told her.

A response that immediately leads Naomi to naming the LGBT+ community as the leading figure in her career success.

“I wouldn’t be a model if it wasn’t for gay men,” she begins. Adding: “I wouldn’t even exist.”

The December issue of British Vogue marks Edward Enninful’s first as Editor-in-Chief.

Titled Great Britain, it features Adwoa Aboah on its cover alongside Victoria Beckham, Letitia Wright, Glenda Jackson, Grace Coddington, Millie Bobby Brown, Christopher Bailey, Gwendoline Christie and Jourdan Dunn, among many more.
