“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.”
