Though I typically don't shy away from posing in the nude for my own artwork, this group of photos is unique. I often adorn myself in glitter, food, you name it. This is just me, in a cold studio, under rainbow lights. These aren't meant to be "flattering" or "sexy." They are nothing other than something of me, for me, by me. Let it serve as a reminder for you to love yourself.
Gilbert Baker, the artist and pride activist who created the rainbow flag, passed earlier this year. Here are pictures from his memorial march. Thank you Gilbert for giving our community all of its beautiful color.
