The Gorgeous Project in Palm Springs, New York and Beyond

If you're a fan of this blog, you already know I love The Gorgeous Project, which you can read about when you jump to this post on the blog.

On November 8, 2014, The Gorgeous Project celebrated its first national exhibit at Gallery 446 in Palm Springs, California. The hosts were celebrity guests Amanda Lepore, Armen Ra and Ernie Omega. The exhibit is sponsored by AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Palm Springs Pride, and benefits Boo2Bullying. The exhibit runs through December 31, 2014.

Photographer Rob Lebow said opening night: "Artists can awaken the world to the negativity of bullying and how zero tolerance is the only answer to create a safe learning environment for youth."

In January, 2015, selected portraits from The Gorgeous Project will next hang in a joint show entitled "club kids" with famed New York photographer Patrick McMullan.

McMullan and Lebow have captured many of the same subjects at different periods in their lives–and it's a wonderful contrast.

Lebow recently wrote me that The Gorgeous Project coffee table book is on course for a 2015 release.
