Transgender model ANJALI LAMA took home the award for AGENT OF SOCIAL CHANGE at the first ever GQ Style Awards in Mumbai on Saturday evening. Anjali joined an august list of award recipients that includes Akshay Kumar who received the GQ Legend, Alia Bhatt who won Most Stylish Woman and Shahid Kapoor who took home the Most Stylish Man award. The award was held to celebrate people defining fashion and urban culture in India. Lama made waves in the fashion scene in India last year when she modelled at the LAKME FASHION WEEK.

Another incredible feat for ANJALI. I hope this visibility and recognition translates to more meaningful work for Anjali that continues to inspire her to do more in fashion, become stronger and a bigger Agent of Social Change.

GQ INDIA wrote “With her poise and presence, she’s one of India’s top fashion models. Arguably more significant is her widespread acceptance and success, which shows the progress made by transgender communities in this country: Lama represents the increasing assimilation of a community traditionally excluded from the mainstream, and now, suddenly, its strut.”
