Psychologist

"I feel at peace with my looks. Doing the work I do has helped me get comfortable with how I am. Also, as a gay man who grew up in the era of AIDS, I'm glad to have reached the age I have, and look forward to growing older. I saw so many friends and acquaintances cut down in their prime. My sister just turned 63, and she was regretful about it, but for me it's like, 'C'mon, I'm glad you're alive — you should be glad you are alive, too.'" — Photo by Ben Baker
