Gay Olympic silver medalist Ji Wallace and other LGBTI community members have bared all for a photo shoot to raise money for charity.

Organised by Darlinghurst pet boutique Shrink My World, the 15-photo ‘My Bare World’ exhibition featured subjects posing nude with their pets to fit the theme of ‘In My Skin’.

The photos, taken by high-profile photographer John Donegan, were sold at auction at the Stanley Street Gallery in Darlinghurst on Saturday night to raise money for the RSPCA.

Shrink My World owner Rio Afero organised the initiative as a way to get the community involved in animal welfare.

“The RSPCA is an international organisation but it relies heavily upon community donations. As a business owner and community member, I wanted to help,” Afero said.
