LOS ANGELES  Mia Isabella has named feminist attorney Gloria Allred as her new mentor.  The international model and actress attended the Oscars' "Night of 100 Stars Gala" with Allred and supermodel Beverly Johnson last week. 

"I reached out to Gloria because I needed to find a mentor who understood civil rights and, more importantly, someone who has championed for LGBT rights," Isabella said. "Someone who could give me guidance with what I've been going through, as a trans woman in the 21st century, dealing with the media due to my high-profile relationships. Her strength in the pursuit of justice is what has inspired me most and has given me strength during these last few months."

Isabella said, "When Gloria invited me to attend the 'Night of 100 Stars Gala,' I was thrilled and honored. As we waited in the press line, Gloria said her long-time friend and client, supermodel Beverly Johnson, wanted to meet me and walk the carpet with us. When the night starts out like that, while already standing in line with actress Bai Ling, you know it's going to be a great evening. To be standing beside these powerful women, unafraid to stand up to injustice and for women and LGBT rights, was inspiring. I felt I was exactly where I'm meant to be. It was an elegant night full of champagne networking with Hollywood execs and insiders I won't soon forget."
 
This week, Isabella was quoted in a Daily Beast article about Caitlin Jenner's decision to openly dating men.
 
Isabella, who entered the adult industry at 19 and went on to win many industry awards, said, "I'm glad the press is sharing my positive messages." Isabella can be followed on Twitter @themiaisabella.com.
