Arin_katie

Barneys New York has partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the LGBT Community Center (The Center) on its spring campaign which features 17 transgender models and "hopes to help break stereotypes and build social acceptance of transgender people."

Additionally, Barneys is donating 10% of all sales from its 11 flagship stores nationwide and Barneys.com on February 11th to the LGBT Community Center in New York City and the National Center for Transgender Equality.

BarneysBarneys writes:

Arin Andrews, Edie Charles, Valentijn de Hingh, Ashley de la Cruz, Sawyer Devuyst, Peche Di, Dezjorn Gauthier, Trevon Haynes, Katie Hill, Eve Lindley, Niki M’nray, Ryley Pogensky, Ines Rau, May Simon, Ahya Taylor, Maxie Neu, and Gisele Xtravaganza. These seventeen extraordinary men and women, transgender individuals with diverse experiences and unique personal stories, are the faces of Barneys New York’s Spring 2014 campaign: Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters, which launches today exclusively on The Window.

Shot by iconic photographer Bruce Weber in New York City, many were photographed and filmed surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. By depicting these human connections, Weber was able to represent both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity.

4_barneysAs part of the campaign, Barneys is publishing interviews and videos about the participants, like Katie Hill and Arin Andrews in the photo at the top of the page. They write:

Katie was the first transgender student to graduate from her Oklahoma high school in 2012, and the former couple—they remain close friends—first got together when they met at a transgender support group. Their courage, admirable sense of self, and determination to help others who have shared their experiences have made them incredible role models—not only for the many young people in the trans community, but for us all.

Today, The Underwear Expert shares a new set of photos with Towleroad featuring Alesso, a 24-year-old New Yorker from San Benedetto Del Tronto in Abruzzi Italy who works as a fit model for JC Penney and is shot here by Lewis & Marshall.

"I own a lot of Emporio Armani briefs," he said when asked about his underwear in this series. "Aside from the quality and look, it says something in the bedroom when you're wearing them."  What does it say?

Today, The Underwear Expert is sharing one of its favorite model/photographer pairings with Towleroad.

Paul Boulon shoots six-foot model Steven Dehler in a variety of Marco Marco underwear including briefs and square cut trunks with Venice Beach, California as a background. Dehler, who is out and proud, has modeled for Timoteo, Andrew Christian and Freedom Reigns but he tells The Underwear Expert he'd rather be commando: "..honestly, I’m not wearing underwear unless I am dancing in it or modeling in it."

Writes Boulon of the shoot: "I'm not drawn to him, I just live with him so that's why I shoot him a lot. And he's beautiful. He shoots easily and knows his body so it makes well for a perfect shoot."
