Estelle Asmodelle is a well known Australian transgender person. As a teenage male, she studied towards degrees in Physics & Mathematics, but chose a career in entertainment as a dancer and underwent a full sex-change operation.
Estelle travelled throughout Asia and worked in cabaret, appearing in many shows, including Les Girls. She then became a model and an exotic dancer, working in the clubs of Kings Cross. In 1986 she became Australia’s first transsexual centrefold girl, by posing nude in a men’s publication. A media storm pushed Estelle’s name in front of the public.
As far back as 1982, Estelle mounted a person campaign to change laws relating to transsexual people, and as a result of those efforts on the 13th October 1987, Estelle became the first legal transsexual in Australia. This gave her an even higher level of notoriety.
Since that time Estelle has lived and worked in Tokyo & Los Angeles and has been a model, dancer and actress.
More recently, Estelle returned to her academic pursuits and written feature articles for Institute of Science and Technology IST (UK) and COSMOS magazine. She completed a B.Sc. in Astronomy with 1st class honours in 2016. Estelle continues to paint abstract works and study towards a PhD in Relativistic Quantum Information.
