Model D photographer Marvin Shaouni
spent eight hours on one of the steamiest days on record getting shot
after shot of people attending Hotter Than July, a celebration of
Detroit's LGBT community of color that takes place each year at Palmer
After watching the grills fire up with food, and models
"vogueing" it up before a scorching dance-off emceed by Innocence Rodeo
Milliown, he came back with hundreds of pictures and memories of what he
called "the most welcoming group of people" he's met in a long time. How cool is that? Enjoy the show.
