I am always interested in hearing someones story. Especially when it’s someone you admire and love. My friend Lauren Foster (transgender model, actress and activist) is doing just that and more with the launch of her new website today titled Just Another Girl. It is filled with information concerning facial feminization and SRS surgeons, trans specific legal information, and beauty tips. Lauren also mentors teens and has created this site with them in mind to help them on their journey.
Lauren has appeared on television on the Real Housewives Of Miami, starred in three art films directed by Joseph Lally, had a five page VOGUE spread, launched the GLAAD Miami Leadership Council with Omar Sharif Jr and Marysol Patton and is currently writing her memoir entitled Just Another Girl.
Lauren answers my foodie questionnaire here:
What is your favorite dessert?
I love a plate filled with big chunks of dark chocolate piled up with slices of fresh oranges. Those two simple flavors are dreamy.
What restaurant would you call your home?
Milos is my go to spot for lunch. I have the same thing every time. They have the best fresh fish on South Beach and creamy Greek yoghurt with honey.
What is the strangest or most inspiring thing you’ve ever eaten?
I ate snake once. I think it was when I toured with Grace Jones. I was a bit apprehensive at first but it tasted a lot like chicken.
What was your favorite breakfast cereal as a kid?
Rice Krispies with fresh strawberries was my favorite cereal as a kid. My moms homemade oatmeal or Maltabella was also yummy.
What is your favorite food to pig-out on after the club?
Pizza baby! In bed, with orange Gatorade and maybe a smoke!
