The modeling industry has been traditionally viewed as feminine. In the last 20 or 30 years, the number of male models has been increasing. The model industry is also expanding to reach many people. It is also one that attracts many members of the LGBTQ community. In our search for influential people in modeling we caught up with Jordun Love. He is a professional model and dancer. Although he is male, Love identifies as queer. His ability to come out confident in his identity has gained him fame, which has landed him lucrative modeling deals.
Jordun Love Age and Career
Jordun was born on 3rd June 1996 in Philadelphia. He grew up with a close relationship with his mother from whom he learned anyone can achieve anything they desire. With that in mind, the idea of dancing was birthed, which later translated into modeling. Since then, he has been incorporating dancing and modeling in displaying his identity.
Before coming out as queer, like most of the people who identify like him, Love tried to live according to society’s standards about a man. He was a people-pleaser for a long time before he gained the strength to accept himself. One day, he stopped caring about what other people thought was masculine. He stepped out as queer and has never gone back to his previous thinking.
Although coming out as a queer black man gave him roses, Jordun also had to face the thorns. Many did not accept his identity as a man. He was labeled many names and got a lot of hate from others. Entering the world of fashion was also challenging because the industry had limited space for black men. Jordun worked his way, met with influential people, and reached the level he is at right now. The success he has had as a model has him featured in Schon Magazine, Vogue, Vman, and other media outlets. He has also worked with Beyonce, Gucci, Black and Pink National, Forever 2, Zegna, and Givenchy.
Jordun’s most iconic body feature is his hair. His hair is long, curly, and has little fate on it. When asked by Vogue about it, Jordun said it takes a lot to maintain it. He relies on hair products like Black Vanilla Shampoo, Coconut Oil, and Curl Enhancing Smoothies. Jordun also confessed to cutting it by age 25 but now that he is age 26 putting it down might not be anytime soon.
