@Sergio thank you for loaning your most intimate space To us. When they asked me where my safe and favorite place in nyc to do this was i mentioned you. Thank you sergio. @elleusa @ninagarcia Thank you for choosing @alphajada . she made my heart sing my truth for hoursbin a way I could barely feel labor from- something about her made me feel the safest i’ve felt yet in an interview to be so vulnerable- She listened patiently and with love. With every scene of my life that I shared I saw her in her eyes experience it with me. She accompanied me to the pharmacy after hanging out with me at my fitting for the Paley fest with @iancogneato, went with me to a pharmacy to cop my hormones & then sat with me in a restaurant at like 3 am cus we was both mad hungry and held so much space for my shock of noticing my ex- who I later realized wasn’t my ex after all. She was there for me like a friend i knew for years but also like a safe stranger I met and of whom we were getting to know each other. It was a healing interview- and i never thought something like that could be possible, I hope @alphajada & I can still be friends. @zoeygrossman GURL. the way you shot me to life is gagworthy and gagconic. The way you trusted me made me trust you. Our relationship through your camera was so personal and intimate and synergetic.. when I explained to you what my prime lighting was & when I told you i was afraid of my complexion being whited out, you listened intently. You saw me how I see myself, And reflected that in our photos. Thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving me the space to channel that . @makeupvincent & @hoshounkpatin I love you guys so much and am so grateful you flew out to LA for me for this project. You manifested a cunt fish and gag and made it hair and makeup, thank you Both for being so helpful present loving and sincerely dedicated to make me look right.
