NEW YORK, NY–American Apparel recently put out an open call for transgender models.

The clothing company announced via Instagram that they’re seeking trans-sexy models.

They asked transgender and transsexual people to visit its Chelsea location for more information. A call to the location on Wednesday, August 28, American Apparel confrimed that the walk-in call has ended, but people can still electronically submit emails with attached pictures.

The business has traditionally marketed clothing to the LGBT community.

But they’ve also gone overboard with some advertising, and are frequently the target of criticism for overly sexy ads.
