ANDREJ PEJIC’S LIFE BACKGROUND

Coming from Bosnia with Croatian father and mother from Serbia, ANDREJ PEJIC was born a year before Balkan conflict. His family moved to Serbia. And as Pejic was 8, they moved to Melbourne, Australia. It took a year for ANDREJ PEJIC to learn English. His teenage life was spent with the lack of respect with himself since he found out that he seemed different from any other boys. He knew that it would be the gender problem in society and he ended up being someone he was not. ANDREJ PEJIC was in effort to be more acceptable in society. Until when he was 17, he worked at McDonalds at that time. When he was on work someone offered him to join his model agency. Unfortunately, that person really had no idea that Pejic is a man. So that, people in that model agency, after finding out that he is a man, tried to make him look more masculine by forcing him to do some exercises, because the clients in male suit industry wanted him that way. ANDREJ PEJIC said that it would not be a good idea recently, since that would make him not be able to wear the female suit.

ANDREJ PEJIC now feels more comfortable with himself. In fashion world, he can express himself liberally without being judged. When being asked what that suit him most, female or male suit? ANDREJ PEJIC simply answered that he enjoyed both of them. His friends and family really support him. ANDREJ PEJIC stated that his mother is so proud of him that sticks his pictures all over the room in her house. Though he may be not the first androgyny model, the most adorable androgynous supermodel recently is still ANDREJ PEJIC.

“Culturally, I guess I like to identify as a lesbian but, in my opinion, everyone is bisexual and nobody fits in these gendered rules. I never have. So if I meet someone that I love, I don’t care what gender they are. …At the same time, mostly I just like girls!”
