Megan Thee Stallion Covers Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2021 Issue

With her debut on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, Megan is tackling issues surrounding the lack of representation of Black women — something that she’s been passionate about since seeing women like Banks come before her.

“For me, growing up and seeing Tyra on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit was a big deal. She is a tall, curvy, Black woman like me,” she says. “Seeing yourself represented is instrumental. Humans come in all shapes, sizes and colors and we all should be celebrated because we are all beautiful.”
