Playboy creator Hugh Hefner’s been getting plenty of negative press lately, mostly in relation to former Playmate Holly Madison’s new tell-all book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny. 

But now, someone has come forward to praise Hefner and his long-time liberal, forward-thinking attitude: Caroline “Tula” Cossey, a former Bond girl and the first transgender model to ever appear in Playboy back in 1991, and again in ‘93. 

In a revealing interview with Playboy (her first in 20 years), Cossey — now 60 and married — remembers how Hefner treated her with respect and dignity in a time when the term “trans” was still widely misunderstood.

“I remember being invited to the Mansion to meet Hugh Hefner,” Cossey recalls. “He looked into my eyes and I immediately knew he felt my story. He felt my cause.”
