Coming Out as a Model in the BlogHer '13 Fashion Show

BlogHer Original Post

Coming out as a blogger and a lesbian were easier for Ginger Sass than admitting on her blog what she'll be doing when she gets to Chicago this week for the BlogHer 2013 conference: she'll be modeling in the BlogHer '13 Fashion Show.  On Saturday night, she'll walk the runway and own her beauty.

She writes,

"At a time in my life where I’ve been having an inexplicable amount of body image issues, for no reason whatsoever, I consciously decided to be a model, in a fashion show, in front of thousands of women.

This is basically both a dream come true and a huge nightmare for my inner teenage girl."

Of course, coming out to the fashion show and cheering all the models on Saturday night could go a long way in quelling jitters.  

Will we see you at the BlogHer '13 Fashion Show?
