Today is the day to plan to stay in.
A friend of mine introduced me to today's intervieweee's blog last year, and I fell in love. I think Queerty described him best: "Bryan is a fashion obsessed, trannyrific, blogstar living in the Philippines. He has a penchant for Louis Vuitton and Gucci. He loves to dress himself up in women's fashion and do photo shoots. We don't know if we want to fly him to NYC for a day of shopping or run away from him as far as we can. He is fabulous and vulgar and truly one of a kind." He's made fans across the world who love showing their affection for him by sending him photos imitating his signature pose. I'm not sure if it's his enviable purse collection that makes him so popular, or his girlish slim figure. I think it might have something to do with this filthy mouth and clever writing.
The Bryanboy Interview: Somewhere Around Twenty Questions
You’re extremely accessible: you have your email, IM, and phone number on your site. Do you worry about readers who might get a little too familiar?
Most of my contact details are easily disposable and replaceable. I don’t have problems being extremely accessible because I love interacting with people: both my loyal readers… and my loyal haters. Hearing what other people have to say is fascinating and at times, entertaining. It’s always nice to read emails from readers located in faraway lands. For instance, if I were to keep my contact details private, how would I know I have a massive following in Scandinavia and teenage blond boys masturbate to my photos late at night?
Where are you traveling to next?
I planned on visiting Norway and France around Christmas but that trip won’t push through because of many things. A Swedish friend is visiting the third world this month so I have to play hostess for a few weeks – we’re going around the Philippines, I guess, hit a few islands and catch up with my tan.
I enjoy seeing the stuff you buy all the time, but what do you do with the purses you don’t carry around anymore? Can I have one?
I archive them! I keep everything! Being the materialistic, selfish pig that I am, I have this major problem with parting away from my possessions. I generally use and abuse my things until they look soooo ratty tatty that no one would dare buy them off eBay if I were to sell them for a penny.
Can you have one of my purses? If you ask nicely and hook me up with a gorgeous, well-endowed guy, sure, why not?
Do you typically meet your online fans when you travel? Do they usually say you’re just like what they imagined, or different?
Good question. Generally-speaking, no. Travelling is the best opportunity for me to “escape from reality” and it’s always nice to meet people who don’t have a clue about me. It’s quite awkward meeting people who already painted a picture of you or have all these expectations. I’ve met readers in the past, yes, but usually out of sheer coincidence. For instance, there was a time when I took the subway in Paris and 2 guys approached me to ask if I’m Bryanboy or not.
A few people that I’ve met usually tell me I’m much, much friendlier in person. I met these lovely Germans when I went to Copenhagen this year and all of them could not believe how “normal” I was.
What does your family think of your site?
My familia de horreur loves it! I’m extremely lucky to have a very accepting and supportive family. Trust me, they’ve seen it all and me wearing sky-high Jimmy Choos is the least of their worries.
One of the best things I love about the fabulous third world is the fact that every parent here wants to have a gay child. Why? Parents want someone to take care of them when they’re old, wrinkly and frail and nobody does it better than a homosexual child! Their straight kids would’ve left them for some ugly son of a bitch to copulate and reproduce with, whereas the unfortunate, single and lonely fag have no choice but to push wheelchairs and change senior citizen diapers when the day comes!
What do your folks do for a living? (That one came from a fan.)
My father is a corrupt, former army general who’s currently moonlighting as a hairdresser to the stars whenever he’s not playing golf with other corrupt army generals whereas my mother is a full-time telephone sex operator.
Like Trent or Perez, do you meet any of the famous people you blog about? Do you want to? Or you don’t want to make Paris Hilton look bad by standing next to her?
I’m in the third world so my opportunities are extremely limited. The only famous person I blog about (and I’ve met) is myself. Oh… and the fabulous Mrs. Imelda Marcos. I love her – she’s the grandma I never had! Things would’ve been different if I live in NYC or Los Angeles though. Do I want to meet famous people? Of course! I look forward to the day I share a toilet cubicle with a young Hollywood starlet.
Tell us about your book project.
Only if you tell me the secret password and no, it’s not open sesame.
Is it me or do a lot of straight guys love your site? Why do you think that is?
Straight guys? Where? Show me!!!! *sings* Dontcha wish your girlfriend was hot like me? Dontcha wish your girlfriend was a freak like me? Dontcha?
The answer is simple: straight guys love my website because I’m better than most girls. Legs akimbo, babe, we all know guys love sluts who can’t get pregnant.
We see so many pictures of you on your site: who is taking most of them?
My super gal-pal maid Eunice took most of my pictures. Good help is extremely hard to find these days and I’m extremely blessed to have her.
People love to hate on you in the comments section. Do any of them ever really bother you?
People can be so mean and nasty at times and it used to bother me tremendously when I first started blogging. It’s definitely true that no one can please everyone. When you put yourself out in the open, you have no choice but to take negativity in stride. I guess I developed a tolerance for haters over time. There will always be mean-spirited people out there whose life mission is to bring you down. It’s sad that people like that exist. Why can’t everyone be happy for someone?
These days, I *LOVE* getting hate mails! It gives me a sense of pride knowing I’ve struck a chord somewhere. Many things have been said about me and I’m no newbie when it comes to vicious emails, petty rumours and the usual vile. It’s wonderful to know that I’m capable to effortlessly stimulating people’s minds and elicit some sort of a reaction while having fun in the process. Isn’t it cool that you made an impact on their whereas you, on the other hand, don’t really give a shit about theirs?
Paris Hilton said it best: jealousy, jealous, jealousy… is such an evil thing!
How about the readers who compare you to Bobby Trendy?
I don’t understand why people compare me to Bobby Trendy when it’s clear that I’m not morbidly obese and I don’t have a furniture line targeted to fans of the International Male catalog. But hey, you have to give kudos to that guy though. I think he’s absolutely fabulous and he certainly knows how to keep the spirit of faggotry alive!
It seems like a lot of people try to figure out Bryanboy.com, ie whether you’re a real person, whether it’s a satirical blog, etc. Do you have an idea of what it ‘is’ or is that not even worth the time to figure it out?
Everyone’s got their own opinion and interpretation of me, my character and my website so I’ll leave it to the reader what to make out of me. I guess that’s part of my appeal. Looking at my website is like watching a car crash in slow motion. Nobody can figure out what I’m all about so all they could do is watch.
Are you a man? Are you a woman? Are you gay? Are you straight? Are you a tranny? Are you a prostitute? Are you a drug addict? Are you a slut? Are you a sperm bank?
I’m all of the above!
Be honest: is the Birkin bag all that? And I mean the bag itself.
I love my Birkin! It’s a great, timeless bag definitely worth having and it looks good with everything.
Err… change that. What I meant was, a Birkin bag makes everything look good.
You say in another interview that your first blog was “a private, work-related thing, with only a few industry colleagues reading it.” What work, and what industry?
How did you get such an international fan base?
Geography is no boundary when it comes to Bryanboy’s faggotry!
Humour and laughter comes in many forms and I’ve always considered my blog as a form of entertainment. Also, stereotypes are universal. Why not capitalize on your stereotype and use it to entertain yourself… and other people too?
One of the reasons why I’m was able to captivate the minds of people all over (I can’t say hearts because I’m still a lonely fuck) is the way I present self-obsession and self-importance on my blog. My exaggerated writings and imagery portray a lifestyle that is often times incredible and unbelievable, no matter what culture anyone might come from. Although my writing is shallow for most, they can be thought-provoking, insulting, humorous, etc. to others.
It certainly helps that most people, regardless of their location, have a basic command of English. I never proofread, spell-check, grammar-check or edit my work. It doesn’t take a well-written, well-thought out piece in order to express a message out.
What made you decide to start posting yourself on YouTube?
I posted myself on YouTube hoping Josh Hartnett would find my videos one day so that he’ll call me and ask me to procreate with him. *wink*
A lot of my readers can’t get enough of me – they want to see what I’m wearing, what I eat, where I go, what I do on a daily basis, what kind of music I listen to, etc. They also want to hear my voice and how I move. I thought, why not make little fun videos for my readers?
Ultimately, I want to be able to spread my concept of ‘faggotry’ on a wider scale and YouTube does that. You know, keep the faggotry flame alive. My faggotry has little to do with being gay or bisexual though. It does have a certain ‘gay’ factor because of my outlandish, flamboyant and sometimes, ridiculous, display of self-expression, that at first glance, only a ‘gay’ man can do, but in reality, it’s not homosexuality that I’m promoting but the freedom of expressing one’s self regardless of what people think. It’s a great feeling to have the ability to break the mold and let your own character shine through. Now is the best time to celebrate one’s individuality and uniqueness. If not now, when?
How does it feel to be the 170th person interviewed for Zulkey.com?
