7. Caroline Cossey
Caroline Cossey is a model who also has appeared as an extra in one of the James Bond films, “For Your Eyes Only”. After the movie was released in 1981, she was outed as a transgender female by the British tabloids.
Even though this made the model upset, she didn’t give up and continued her career. In addition to that, she fought for trans rights in the United Kingdom. It looks like her efforts were not in vain, because they reached all the way to the European Court of Human Rights.
Caroline Cossey became the first trans female who posed for the adult magazine Playboy and since she was outed as a transgender, she fought for her rights to legally be considered a woman. She also battled for her right to legitimately get married.
