There are moments that I heard about, that help you forget when the world told you “Never” !!! . . There are these moments I heard about about that help you heal when the society has tried to beat you down , over and over again. . . There are these very real moments that I heard about that help you feel affirmed even when you don’t see yourself. . . I’ve been searching my whole life for those moments, I got tired of looking for those moments. . . So I decided to create them. Not for me but for the next dreamer, outcast, queer, trans, disabled, fat, beautiful black, piece of starlight waiting for their moment to shine. . . It has been such an honor and pleasure to sit in my most authentic self and present imagery of a body that far to often has been demonized, harassed , made to feel ugly and unworthy and even killed. . . I present this image ,myself and all that my body stands for to my community and chosen family, in hope that they see themselves more clearly than ever and further realize that they are worthy of celebration , of compassion , of love and gratitude. . . – Thank you to @ryanmcginleystudios and the @calvinklein family for a collaboration that will hopefully be a symbol of hope and love during these moments.

La imagen se da a conocer en el mes de celebración del orgullo gay. La modelo de talla grande y piel morena también se identificó con el movimiento Black Lives Matter que surgió durante las protestas después de la muerte de George Floyd en Minneapolis, Estados Unidos.

Para celebrar su nombramiento y participación en esta nueva tarea en su carrera, destapó una botella de champán, mientras posaba para una foto delante del poster con su imagen.
