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.
