Chris Fawcett on being an openly-gay male model


Chris Fawcett was in the US Navy, but since leaving has been a model for Calvin Klein, DKNY and many other major companies. He's been talking to the Windy City Times about being openly gay, when a large number of his colleagues still hide their sexual orientation.

I didn't mean to be openly gay in the industry; it just kind of happened. I have trouble with holding things back, or trying to hide things that I don't feel like I should have to. Regarding the industry, I think sometimes people are quick to label you, and it's sad that it's like that. In this day and age, as much ground that we've seen breaking when it comes to equal rights, I feel in some cases [discrimination exists]. I know there are plenty of photographers who won't shoot gay models, and I think it's sad because they're passing on models who are truly talented and have a great gift.
