Mj Rodriguez (“Pose”) is the newest beauty ambassador for Olay. Per an interview with The Cut on Friday (November 8), Rodriguez will be the face of the Olay Body 14-Day Skin Transformation campaign. Not only is it her first beauty campaign, but it’s Olay’s first partnership with a Latinx transgender woman.
“I’ve never been able to be considered for a partnership like this. A lot of girls like myself—trans women—we don’t get the opportunity to have open dialogue, let alone be in partnership with organizations like this,” Rodriguez told The Cut. “As a woman, as a Black or Latina or trans woman, we have to constantly give words of affirmation to ourselves. It’s just hard for us. I’m just focusing on amplifying my voice, trying to get it out there as much as possible.”
