Dezjorn Gauthier, J.M. (26) resides in Muskego, WI, USA. Started modeling at just 6 months old for top children’s brands around the nation and winning national titles. He began his physical transition April 2014; shortly after he was featured in the well known Barneys New York campaign, featuring 17 transgender models. This was the first publishment he had as a transman. With international coverage Dezjorn has been featured in many articles and celebrity shoots all while attending school.

With modeling as his first passion, Dezjorn graduated from Marquette University in 2013 with a degree in Criminology, Law Studies and Sociology.

Dezjorn was managed by the world’s first transgender-specific agency in New York, NY. Aside from modeling and furthering his education, Dezjorn started his own philanthropic business to effectively bring awareness to the transgender community with a special focus on transmales and transmen of color through education, empowerment and inspiration. His business hosts an annual surgery fund, laptop scholarship, FTM essesentials donation program, and mentoring. Dezjorn also is the founder of the Dorothy J.
