Had a ball making appearances on both coasts as one of Instinct Magazine's Leading Men of 2011 with some LGBTQ glitterati Mike Ruiz (A-List), Reichen (Amazing Race), Darryl Stephens (Noah's Arc), etc. More pix here: New York Bash & Hollywood Bash. How many celebs can you spot? I'm horrible with faces and names so I dare not try to ID anyone. Some people mistook me for Lloyd from Entourage or Alec Mapa?! (I suppose to some folks, we all look alike! Groan...)
As many of you know from my prior blog post, I made Instinct Magazine's Leading Men Issue for my work with Say It 2 My Face. It's been quite a month!
The New York Bash was a smash hit last week and the Hollywood Bash did not disappoint this week! Merci beaucoup for everyone who came out to meet me in person. Below is a quick pic me with fellow UC Berkeley Alumni Darryl Stephen of Noah's Arc as well as photo of me being splashed across walls of the Lexington Social House.
Instinct Magazine's November Issue features me and other guys who are trying to make a difference. I'm so honored and flattered to be noticed for my work as spokesperson for anti-cyberbullying campaign Say It 2 My Face. Past leading men have included Andy Cohen VP of BravoTV, Armistead Maupin of Tales in the City, & Tim Gunn of Project Runway.
Instinct Mag writes:
"Many of the LBGTQ advancements this past year can be directly attributed to the 20 gentlemen we honor in Instinct’s 2011 leading men issue. They shattered stereotypes, demanded action and attention and, in some cases, put their own safety at risk in the name of helping others. They are...proudly showing the world what character and virtues a true leading man embodies."
Full list of the 2011 Leading Men are here.
Meet us at the Leading Men Party in New York City, hosted by Rupaul's Drag RaceManila Luzon November 15, 2011.
