Did anybody involved know the photographs were for the cover of the newspaper’s queer issue?

“I didn’t know, so I doubt anyone knew,” Ms. Schechter told The Observer.

“They just wanted me to take beautiful pictures, they wanted me to sculpt the light,” she said. “That’s all I knew.”

Ms. Schechter had nothing but nice things to say about Mr. Magro, Mr. Guadagnino and Mr. Sorrentino.

One more thing: “These guys are 100 percent straight men. They walk outside and women materialize.”
