John Raspado is ready for Mr. Gay World 2017


Mr. Gay World Philippines’ official national costume is inspired by a combination of the pre-colonial & spanish influences in the Philippines since mr. gay world will be held in spain.

The gold embellished metallic head piece was designed to symbolize the indigenous mythical demigod "sidapa" - a great warrior and patron diety of the homosexuals in the Philippines.

The head gear – the head of the bull is both the symbol of a spanish matador and the symbol of the zodiac sign taurus since Mr. Gay World will be held on may 10 and it is also the zodiac sign of Mr gay world national director for the Philippines Wilbert Tolentino (shown on this photo).

Definitely a treat for the eyes, watch out for the drama & visual spectacle that will unfold as the Mr. Gay world Philippines representative John Fernandez Raspado proudly showcases this national costume worth $5,000 (five thousand us dollars).
this costume was created by well known international celebrity designer Rocky Gathercole -the hollywood designer to the stars such as J.lo, Katty Perry, Nikki Minaj, Paris Hilton, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Gloria Estefan, Toni Braxton, Carrie Underwood & Mel B also known as Scary Spice from the Spice Girls.


ON Monday, April 24, reigning Mr. Gay World Philippines John Fernandez Raspado will meet members of media before he finally leaves for Madrid and Maspalomas in Spain to represent the Philippines at the 9th Mr. Gay World finals.

The 36-year-old, 6-foot-2 online marketing entrepreneur from Baguio City admits he is doubly pressured to compete because first, he is carrying the name of the entire LGBTQI community in the Philippines hoping to uplift them to greater levels of respect and equality, and second, he hopes to continue the feat of last year’s local delegate, Christian Lacsamana who placed second runner-up, the first Filipino to ever make it to the finals.

Fully aware that an Asian has yet to win the pageant for straight-looking gay men, John is not taking any chances and has adopted a holistic approach in his series of trainings and preparations for his international campaign.
