On the beach with social influencer Kevin Carnell

25-year-old Instagram star and activist Kevin Carnell raised $10,000 for people with HIV by cycling in his tiny Speedos.

After dealing with low self-esteem and poor body image all his life, Carnell came out five years ago, explaining to The Advocate that he wanted to find a way to love himself and embrace who he was without the sexual attention of others.

If I wanted to be happy with how I viewed myself, I needed to set a goal and start from within. It’s not about having the perfect body, but rather having the perfect mindset for how you view your body.
