DOSSIER’S ANDREJ PEJIC COVER CENSORED BY BARNES & NOBLE, BORDERS (PHOTO, POLL)

Barnes & Noble and Borders censor image of androgynous male model Andrej Pejic ‘in case customers think he is a woman.

Two major U.S. book retailers have censored an image of androgynous male model Andrej Pejic ‘in case customers confuse him for a woman’.

The Serbian-born catwalk star, 19, who has appeared in shows for Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier, appears topless on the cover of glossy magazine Dossier.

But both Barnes & Noble and Borders have demanded that issues of the magazine come wrapped in opaque plastic.

Barnes & Noble is said to have told Dossier’s distributor that it would have to forfeit the order or agree to a covering concealing the image.

It said that though it understood that Mr Pejic was male and not female, ‘the model is young and it could be deemed as a naked female’.

ANDREJ PEJIC

Andrej Pejić /ɑːŋdreɪ pɛdʒik/ (born 28 August 1991) is an Australian androgynous model of Bosnian Croat and Bosnian Serb ethnicity.

It has been reported that Pejić was scouted as a model just before turning 17 while working at McDonald’s, but she has also referenced being scouted at a swimming pool whilst still in high school in Melbourne.

Pejić is notable for modelling both male and female clothing. In the Paris fashion shows of January 2011, Pejić walked both the men’s and women’s shows for Jean-Paul Gaultier and the men’s shows for Marc Jacobs. In May 2011, Pejić’s magazine cover for the New York-based magazine Dossier Journal—in which Pejić is pictured taking off a white shirt with long blond locks in curlers—was ruled too risqué by US bookstores Barnes & Noble and Borders, which covered the image with an opaque sleeve. Concerns were expressed that customers would read Pejić as a topless woman.

At the Stylenite in July 2011, Andrej Pejić appeared on the catwalk both in male and female clothes from Michalsky.[citation needed] The following year, Andrej stunned audiences by wearing bridal creations by Spanish designer Rosa Clara at Barcelona’s Bridal Week 2013.

As of September 2011, Pejić ranks no. 18 on the models.com Top 50 Male Models list, and was ranked no. 98 in FHM magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011— an award that was criticized for its hostile tone to transgender individuals; the magazine referred to Pejić as a ‘thing,’ commenting, ‘Pass the sick bucket’. FHM subsequently removed the copy accompanying Pejić’s entry and posted an apology.

On 6 August 2012, Pejić appeared as a guest judge on Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model.

In 2013, Pejić appeared alongside Iselin Steiro, Saskia de Brauw, Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in the video for Bowie’s 2013 single “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)”.

In an interview published in October 2013, Pejić stated that she prefers to be referred to by female pronouns.
