While filming for her transgender episode,Vogue went to Trans Odyssey, the biggest trans convention in Seattle.

“I was filming with this trans man – he used to be a woman – and he said to my director, ‘So when did Vogue start?'” she told Tommy Tiernan on his new RTE show.

“I sound a bit like a boy, I’m very, very tall and I have big hands so I got it.

A funny moment on the show as when the Dubliner came on to the stage to be interviewed by Tommy – but he had no idea who she was.

“You have no clue have you? This will be interesting,” Vogue laughed.

Tommy took a shot in the dark and replied, “Let me guess now – you’re a handball player?”
