Cover Model Soren: Photoshoot & Interview

Poster50_WebsiteBanner_02

_MG_4204_web

Hometown: Smithville, MO
Profession: Data analyst at an education nonprofit
Hobbies: poetry, reading, biking, porching, ribaldry and merriment
Favorite Album: This is a tough one! If I were sixteen I would say Le Tigre’s self-titled album, but now I might say a Depeche Mode Best Of.
Favorite Song: “Psy-Chic” by the Ssion
Favorite Artist: The Cure

F&G: How does it feel being a cover model for F&G? Have you ever modeled before?
Soren:  It’s fun! I had a lot of body shame as an adolescent, so I’m glad to have overcome that mostly and put myself out there. I’ve never modeled before (people have asked but never followed through, alas), but would be happy to give it another go sometime.

F&G: What made you want to do a Greek/Roman theme shoot? What was your initial thoughts behind it? Something you hold interest in?
Soren:  I have a strong affinity for classical civilization that stems mostly from my adoration of epic poetry and mythology. Any time there’s an opportunity to (satirically or otherwise) reincorporate a classical reference into everyday life, I’m down.

_MG_4246_web

F&G: We love the glittery beard! Ever thought of being a mystical bearded fairy? What type of fairy would you be?
Soren:  I think I still have glitter in my beard from the shoot, in fact. I used to date a guy who repeatedly referred to himself as “radical faery-adjacent,” like some sort of badge, so that experience kind of impinges on my thoughts whenever someone mentions fairies as a subculture or something. However, if I were a fairy, I would want to have the power to blow a kiss in the form of a big, pink, furry heart at people to turn them queer. I would only use my powers for good, of course, i.e., on the kind of people who shout homophobic shit at you in the street.

F&G: What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Soren:  Sardonic, Impassive, and Even-tempered.

F&G: Tell us a little secret about yourself that someone might not know!
Soren:  Chris Kirkpatrick was my favorite N*SYNC member. I know.

_MG_4252_web

F&G: If you could be an all mighty ruler what type of ruler would you be?
Soren:  I would totally go for an Eastern-influenced Pericles-George Washington hybrid: “A leader is best when people barely know he exists; when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, ‘We did it ourselves.’”

F&G: How does music fit into your every day life?
Soren:  It varies based on the day. I work in an open office, so it’s definitely my go-to for keeping me awake and blocking out yet another conversation about how the Bruins are doing this year. That said, I think I try to listen to music only when I really have time to do just that, so it’s more indispensable on the weekends.

_MG_4224_web

F&G: What songs are blowing up your play lists these past few months?
Soren:  Oh man anything by Cakes Da Killa, Big Momma, Austra, Iggy Azalea, Oxmo Puccino, or JD Samson & Men. I’ve been listening to their albums on repeat. Also anything on the Kitsune Maison mixes.

F&G: How did you find out about F&G?
Soren:  A friend of mine brought me for the first time a couple years ago.

_MG_4275_web

F&G: What about F&G makes you keep coming back for more?
Soren:  Everyone is so nice (including the bartenders)! Also I love that it’s one of the few queer spaces where you can just talk to people without the automatic assumption that you just want to get them naked. (Is that just my reading?) That said, doesn’t hurt that there are usually some pretty handsome fellas in attendance. I’m just glad to listen to some music that’s not Top 40 and chat with convivial folks.
