The first-ever Pinoy Mr. Gay World John Raspado will start his acting career via the sexy stage play, “Solo Para Adultos.” He also shared why he just joined showbiz on his 30’s and not when he was younger.
“Actually, year 2000, nag-VTR na ako for auditions, pero hindi ako pinalad,” he says. “Siguro dahil wala pa rin akong confidence noon. I was still a college student in St. Louis University in Baguio, where I finished marketing,” he shared.
John also shared his experience coming out as gay. “No. In college, may girlfriend ako, four years kami. It’s only after college at napunta ako sa Manila to work here, doon ako nag-experiment. Now, may boyfriend ako who’s based in Australia. Three years na kami, long distance relationship. He visits me and I also visit him.”
He’s active in his advocacy, Responsible Sexual Behavior that fosters HIV Awareness, giving lectures to members of the LGBT community on safe sex.
In “Solo Para Adultos”, John plays a top actor who’s a closet queen. He will be having a kissing scenes with Vivo Ouano, who plays a masseur he falls in love with.
John shared their preparations for the intimate scenes, “No, rehearsals pa lang kami, so puro batuhan muna ng mahahaba naming linya. When the play was offered to me, natakot ako kasi wala naman akong experience sa acting. Pero sa sex, meron. Ha ha ha!”
The 36-year old Mr. Gay World 2017 admitted that he might get affected to Vivo but insisted that to be professional.
Siyempre, affected. Lalaki siya, guwapo, ang ganda ng katawan, mabait pa, e. E, gay ako. But I have to respect him, his boundaries, kasi may asawa’t mga anak na siya. So parang kapatid na lang ang treatment ko sa kanya. Huwag na lang lagyan ng malisya dahil trabaho lang ito. Panoorin nyo na lang ang play namin sa Music Museum on October 20.”
