The LGBTQIA2S+ community is highly represented online, in different pockets of social media, influencers, digital marketing, and Internet brand-building. There are dozens of creative LGBTQ models redefining what fashion is. Their visibility and artfulness is changing how fashion and jewelry’s worn. As one of Canada’s fastest growing handmade artisan jewelry brands, it is with excitement that Corail Blanc shares a few of our favourite LGBTQ models and influencers we cannot get enough of.

Meera Singhania Rehani
Meera Singhania Rehani made headlines in an advertisement for Bhima jewelry, a traditional Indian jewelry brand who featured her, a transgender model, in their campaign.

Jessica Kellgren-Fozard is not only a member of the LGBTQ community but she also lives with chronic illness and a disability. Her videos are more informative than fashion, however, she showcases frequently in retro, vintage, 1960s-inspired outfits that would pair well with some handmade earrings or necklaces. She’s a beauty to watch!

You won’t necessarily find a lot of specific fashion and jewelry posts from Hawaiian model Tatiana Ringsby but after her coming out video on TikTok went viral, her travel and lifestyle content’s remained on a lot of peoples’ minds.
