with fashion underwear
MARK STOKES I Illustrator
Name and age: Cesar Augusto Fuerte, 22
Spotted at: Walmart Market on
Occupation: Full-time student, part-time
This exquisite Taurus is a full-time student at UNT,
studying fashion design and fashion merchan-
dising with a minor in international business.
Cesar demonstrated an early talent in art, with a
knack for drawing and a keen eye for color. His
interest in life drawing led him to consider an-
other creative outlet, fashion design. Cesar's
long-term goal is to design men's wear, concen-
trating on men's underwear. Cesar already designs and sews his own underwear. He gets a secret thrill out of
attending conservative events knowing that underneath his dress clothes, he's wearing provocative skivvies.
The eldest of three brothers, Cesar emigrated from Michoacana, Mexico, with his family when he was very
young. His youthful countenance and his friend's constant referral to him as a "kid" inspired Cesar to play up
that boy role and he often dresses up as a school boy or cub scout when he goes out on the town.
Cesar came out formally when he was 16. "Since I came to terms with my homosexuality, I've learned to appre-
ciate all types of gay people." He was in the talented and gifted program at a magnet high school, where his
creativity was allowed to flourish. He was vice president of Gay and Lesbian Alliance of Denton in his junior
year, and president his senior year.
He enjoys dancing and socializing. He is a member of the Fashionistas, a non-profit group that helps out up-and-
coming designers with parties and charity events. He has also worked behind the scenes with DIFFAfor sev-
eral years as a stylist working with Jan Strimple.
Cesar, like the Emperor. Don't let his boyish looks deceive you: This tantalizing young man is neither shy nor
submissive. He enjoys the look and feel of leather, and finds something empowering about wearing it. He had
a "leather and lace" party on his 21 st birthday, attended by many of his friends wearing one or the other.
