Ethan Miller | Commemorating Pride Month
June is Pride Month–dedicated to celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ community, honoring its history and host to some of the most wild, colorful parades around the world. This year, we’re asking just some of the many out and inspiring individuals in the fashion and design industries what the month means to them.
When you’re part of the world’s #1 international model-management firm, you’d better bring your A game. As a junior agent at IMG Models in NYC, Ethan Miller and his colleagues help represent some of Earth’s most-wanted models.
In a nutshell, what do you do?
I book supermodels around the world and work for the coolest woman I know.
What’s your first memory of celebrating Pride Month?
Walking down Broadway in Seattle, hand in hand with my first boyfriend, wearing Pride beads and feeling oh so confident.
What does Pride Month mean to you?
I think it’s a nice time to reflect on where the LGBTQ community has come and where we can go next.
What are you doing this year to celebrate?
Honestly, I celebrate every day. Each morning when I get to wake up next to my partner and kiss his cheek is a form of my daily celebration. In that moment, I am so overjoyed that I live in a time and place where I can do that so freely.
How would you love to see Pride Month evolve in the United States or the world?
I would like to see the conversation continue to expand, become more inclusive both in terms of the transgender community and in terms of race. Believe it or not, race in the LGBTQ community is still a conversation.
