Several months ago I had the opportunity of attending the launch of VYM Magazine and met the creative director and art director Johnny Velour and Sasha Velour. They were intrigued by the Transparency project and modeled for it exploring gender identity and gender fluidity. Sasha, the art director and a fantastic drag performer and activist invited me to participate in their next issue. The theme was realness and our mood board was heavily influenced by surrealism. Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos.
