Out100 honoree Casey Legler is a former swimmer turned model and artist. She competed for France in the Atlanta Olympic Games, and has since become the world's first successful female male model -- Legler is 6'2" and exclusively wears men's clothes.

In a new interview with ABC News Australia, Legler speaks about the discrimination she faced after coming out as a lesbian ("I got asked to change in the handicapped locker room and was invited out of the women's locker room") and how she found a new calling as an androgynous model.

"If the image of me out there in the world makes it easier for one more kid to think that there's some f**king place for them, then that's the business I'm into," Legler says.
