This summer’s Pride coverboy is Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson. You can read the cover story and see the first set of images on Advocate.com. Above, are two outtakes from the shoot, photographed by M. Sharkey in New York City. After the jump, see a behind-the-scenes GIF of Jesse’s mean encounter with his collection of bowties and an industrial fan. —Scott McPherson
The other night, my hugely talented best friend Michael Sharkey was part of the show “Testimony: A Living Exhibition of Queer Youth” at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. The exhibition was beautiful and there was some amazing fashions! The other featured artists, Samantha Box, Amos Mac, Molly Steadman, and Valerie Shaff were wonderful as well! Such a fantastic show!

They mixed my words around a little (the second sentence should read “somewhere on the transmasculine spectrum between genderqueer and binary”, instead of binary spectrum between gq and transmasculine), but I think the project as a whole turned out really well and I’m glad I got to be a part of it, though it’s too bad I had to leave early and wasn’t around for that group shot!
