Stone Creek City for Summer Diary Project, and This Show is So Gay!

KimDavidsSmith-3509-Edit-1I recently had the pleasure of lounging in mid-morning daylight for the incredibly talented “Stone Creek City.” Titled “Stranger in Midtown,” and photographed anonymously by Stone Creek City, this photo set plays with light and shadow over the naked form, and is published online by the exquisite curatorial eye of Summer Diary Project.

Kim David Smith in Sparkle & Circulate and Out Magazine

I had the pleasure of sitting down with my intensely talented friend and orator, Justin Sayre, for his podcast “Sparkle & Circulate.” Serving as an online supplement to Justin’s wonderful work with “The Meeting” (a monthly meeting for the New York chapter of the  International Order of Sodomites), “Sparkle and Circulate” affords an intimate interview setting, in which I talk about my husband (and our ten wonderful years together), my music, posing naked for artists, and naturally, my religious affinity for Kylie Minogue.

Out Magazine recently published a preview of new works by my friend, designer John Brinegar, for his upcoming show “I Would Never Wear That.” I’ve included several amazing pieces by John in my Instagram feed, and the below image appeared in Out Magazine, in which I’m sporting one of John’s phenomenal cowls.

Below is a video from 2014’s Julie Andrews-themed edition of The Meeting, in which I mash-up Mary Poppins’ “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” with Missy Elliott’s “Work It” (loosely titled Mary HipHoppins):
