“It was a long process that involved breaking down internalized misogyny because a lot of my identity revolved around being a sexualized version of myself. It didn’t allow me to express that side of myself because I was afraid of rejection.” David tells the panel.

David continued on and opened up about not being cast on the hit Netflix show, Queer Eye, how that experience allowed him to grow both inside and outside the industry.

“What it did was provide an importance for me to really embrace and accept the parts of me that I had kept hidden for so long.”

Finally, when asked what his best beauty tip for quarantine life, David had this to say.

“I think this is a really great time for people to get to know themselves again through their routine. I would say my biggest one right now is make sure that you take the time to do the things that you didn’t have time for before. Like using hair masks, using face masks, taking a little bit extra time in the shower, doing the scrubs. Those things are going to be really really important because those things kind of fall to the wayside when in our normal routine,” he advised.
