“I have struggled with my sexual identity my whole life
and where that falls into my spiritual upbringing has been a big challenge for me.
I chose to BARE myself in a recognition of letting go of the past and embracing the whole me just as I am.
I remember feeling an extreme weight being lifted off my shoulders.
A release of guilt, if you will.
The memory is still with me today.
I couldn’t help but cry as I faced my fears and overcame them.
It’s amazing to me that years later I still remember the photo shoot in detail and the feeling of freedom I received in baring myself with no hidden agenda and no masks.”
