Well no… you had one back in 1981…
Caroline Cossey even posed in Playboy Magazine in 1981. http://archive.is/dsdCt
Some history about Barry “Caroline” Cossey
At the age of 17, Cossey started hormone therapy and began living as a woman full time. Soon after beginning transition, Cossey began a career as a showgirl and, after breast augmentation surgery, a topless dancer, working in nightclubs in London, Paris and Rome. After initial shock, Cossey’s parents were supportive. After years of hormonal and psychological treatment, and legally changing her name, Cossey had sex reassignment surgery on December 31, 1974 at Charing Cross Hospital in London.
Post-op, Caroline’s career took off. No longer a topless burlesque dancer, she became a highly sought-after glamour model and commercials actress, in an age when her lanky, other-worldly looks were the height of fashion. Caroline even posed in Playboy Magazine in 1981. However, all of this attention would pale in comparison to when she was cast as an extra in 1981’s The Spy Who Loved Me., finally fulfilling her childhood dream of being a Bond girl. http://archive.is/dsdCt
The source above gets it wrong once again though by calling Caroline Cossey a bond girl. He was an extra… not a Bond Girl… less than 5 seconds on screen and no lines.
Caroline Cossey as seen in the movie “For Your Eyes Only”
Full review of that movie done excellently by Calvin Dyson where he points that out.
Playboy doesn’t even know their own history. They even reference that they had a trans model before http://archive.is/Qlp6u
