"There are similarities between myself and Lea T, and we're placed in the same category, but our look is very different," Andrej Pejic tells British Vogue. "Lea has been extremely brave in being very honest about her journey — but I don't really see myself as being here to challenge transgender stereotypes. I'm just myself. It's taken a while to be taken seriously,  but I hope to prove that I'm very versatile and that I'll still be here after the phenomenon has passed."
