I’d like to show others there are no bounds, boxes, or containers for your ideas and dreams. That you are free to change your mind at any time, and to be an example of someone in perpetual transformation. – Fraley
Vinson is wearing LOIS JEANS + V DENIM pants, with belt and cuff by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co, and his own earrings and bracelet .
My message would be that none of us are free until all of us are. It is society’s obligation to deepen our sense of compassion and action against all oppressions, not just the ones that are convenient for us. So, let’s keep applying the pressure, and within that remembering to leave room for rest. – Fraley
