Ruby Rose jumped on the fame wagon in 2008, when she won a contest to become a VJ on MTV Australia. Since then, the model-turned-television personality has started a fashion label, broken into the music business as a DJ, become the face of Maybelline with advocacy, starred in “Orange Is The New Black,” “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” and “John Wick: Chapter 2,” to name a few.

Throughout her career, Ruby has been an advocate for LGBT people, supporting marriage equality and speaking on behalf of gender-nonconforming individuals. However, her humanitarian side goes beyond the community. She has also taken interest in youth mental health, bullying, women’s rights and animal welfare.

Her devotion to raise awareness about the problems our society faces on a daily basis earned her the 2016 GLAAD’s Stephen K. Kolzak Award, which is presented to an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance.

Even though the Australian babe has been an Afterellen.com favorite for a few years now, lesbian, straight and bisexual women from all walks of life joined the fan club when they first spotted Rose as “Stella Carlin” on Netflix’s “OITNB.”

“When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility,” Rose told Galore magazine back in April. “It sounds like I did something against their will in the middle of the night, as if I crept into their brain and pushed the gay button, then did an evil laugh and left them to fend for themselves – newly gay and alone in the world.”

Ruby’s comment came after several publications promoted memes and comments from social media users claiming to be confused about their sexual preferences after watching the show.
