Leyna Bloom chats with ET’s Denny Directo about making history as the first transgender cover model for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. Upon learning she would receive the honor, Blooms says her first thought was, ‘I just knew the world was gonna change in that moment.’ She gushes over Tyra Banks’ groundbreaking SI cover from 1997. Bloom praises her fellow SI models from this year, Megan Thee Stallion and Naomi Osaka. The model also recently starred on the third and final season of ‘Pose.’ Bloom says the series has been ‘monumental’ for the culture.
