Gay hip-hop star Milan Christopher has proved shyness isn’t a word in his vocabulary after posing completely naked for Paper magazine.

And we mean completely naked.

The 33-year-old musician, who stars in VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood and last year released his debut single ‘When I Go’ protesting the bullying of LGBT youth, has put his manhood proudly on display for the publication’s Summer Pride issue, in a shoot that will have you blushing ever time you see a motorbike for years to come.

Discussing his identity as a black gay artist, Milan says: “Black and gay is like a double whammy. It’s one thing to be gay and be white, it’s a whole other thing to be gay and be black. Especially in the black community.”

 

He adds: “I think about them separately because they are very separate. But I also feel like all those things encompass who I am.

“During pride month, I always think about all of the things that the LGBT community lacks and things that I feel like should be changed. And I think about equality, and the stigma and the taboo, and all the things that we work so hard to break through.”

 

“So I think that this particular shoot, I think this is really important for not just the culture but for the community and pop culture in general.”
