In honor of Consent Month and in the spirit of visibility, Ms. Phoenix Leather Sam Heart recently teamed up with local photographer R.T. Cox and gathered friends from across various communities for a fun photo shoot. “I have met so many amazing, welcoming individuals in our diverse community,” Heart shares. “One of the most valuable things I have learned is how embracing our community is. I asked friends from the leather community, drag community, kink community, Master/slave community, furry community, and LGBTQ community to take a photo with me. We want to include you. Come sit with us!”
