Editor’s Pick | Under LA Double Crossed Leotard

Sometimes I write about them, or give a shout out via social media, but Under LA is one of those that always sticks in my mind and keeps me coming back to see what they have brewing.

Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true."
