This is truly spectacular. Black gay filmmaker, photographer, and fashion editor Kirk Shannon-Butts is giving new meaning to the phrase "black is beautiful" in the latest edition of New York magazine HX.
Shannon-Butts along with photographer Aron Norman have created Deep and Dark for the weekly nightlife magazine brought to life by gorgeous models Art and Makin from Red Model Management.
Shannon-Butts chose to style the men in faded denim by Replay, tanks by Calvin Klein, and my favorite leather bustier by Purple Passion/DVDV8.
In addition to films and freelance work for HX and other publications, Shannon-Butts is also the Men's Editor for Glamour Magazine. This is one brother who has a hard time staying still. What a wonderful example of someone in our community doing it big and doing it well.
