Online PR News – 17-November-2012 She wasPlayboy's Miss November 1992 and the first Playboy
Centerfold to come "out" in the media. 20 years later, Stephanie Adams is 42 years old and looks better
now than ever before, as seen in her new photo book and memoir entitled Proudly Over 40: Playboy
Centerfold Stephanie Adams 20 Years Later .
As mentioned by Adams:
"There was a time once when I thought I had nothing, but what I really had was nothing to lose. It took the
death of someone I love, in order for me to learn how to live. And now I realize that I am truly blessed,
because I have always had it all."
As mentioned in her book:
"The gay community has always been where I've felt most at home. A rainbow flag is most appropriate for a
group of amazing people that are diverse in race, colorful in personality, and brilliant with talent. I was the
first Playboy Centerfold to come 'out' and did so for many reasons. For one, love has no color, sex, or
reason. I never limited my love to just one sex. I'm not ashamed of that and never will be. Also, my younger
aunt who raised me since birth was chastised so badly for her bisexuality, even though she was private
about it, and even though she was more dignified and sophisticated than her bullies could ever be. That
said, when those who pointed fingers were not so kind even the days before she died, I ordered those who
wanted to put her down for having her female friend there to hold her hand to not be allowed in the hospital.
INew York proudly and dared them to treat me the way they treated her. They didn't. And I hope that I
encouraged others to be proud of who, what, and how they identify. My hopes were to truly be a
spokesmodel and advocate, with no regrets or apologies. I donated my own personal funds and helped to
raise funds. I also spoke and represented gay organizations at events and in the media. Speaking on stage
or announcing the Gay Pride parade for NYC and other boroughs was a regular yearly event for me. Those
were truly some of my fondest memories. To this day, I am married to a wonderful man, and I love him
dearly. Those who judge love, don't know how to love...or they wouldn't judge...and they wouldn't judge me
for "coming out" or "going back in", because I am still the same. I am still proud of my past, as well as my
present. No regrets or apologies. And I love the gay community just the same and continue to be a part of it.
Love has no color, sex, or reason...it's just love."
At the age of 42, Adams does not miss being 22, and has maintained her overall well-being with no plastic
surgery, no dieting, no drugs, never exercised a day in her life, eats more than most people twice her size,
along with a hearty amount of laughter. What's her secret? "There is none. I'm far from perfect. I'm proud
and happy as I am." Adams went from "Miss November to Mrs. November" and after over 24 years of
modeling, as well as being the founder of GODDESSY and author of over 24 publications, Adams says that
her greatest accomplishment is being a stay-at-home mother. "My centerfold boasted me wearing designer
lingerie in front of a staged refrigerator. Now I wear my La Leche nursing bra in front of a real refrigerator
with my two year old son's art work on it. I am truly blessed." Adams plans on continuing her career of
writing and possibly some 40+ modeling. "Maybe just a runway or two for a charity event. My main focus is
and will always be my family."
