Styled by Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra for the 2007 gay pride issue of Metromode Magazine, this image was also exhibited in an international photography exhibit at the Center for Fine Art Photography last year.

Does it provide a visual commentary on the process of coming out? Or is it simply a stylized reflection of the gay community itself?
