Earlier in the day, Mr. Gay World Philippines John Raspado was given his formal send-off to Mr. Gay World 2017 to be held in Madrid and Maspalomas, Spain from May 5-10. He was given a visible outpouring of love and support from the Mr Gay World Philippines Organization headed by Wilbert Tolentino, members of the media and his family members. Kristine Caballero Aplal hosted the event at Club One 690 where everyone witnessed how our bet has improved much in the way he expresses his thoughts in front of an audience. Kagandahang Flores took charge of his training from head to toe.
“I promise to do my best to bring home the country’s first Mr. Gay World title. Once more, consistency will be the key in getting the victory.” said John. He will promote his #I❤️LGBTQI Advocacy while in the host city.
You might want to know what National Costume he will wear in Spain. Here it is.
Mr. Gay World Philippines Organization Head Wilbert Tolentino models the National Costume that John Raspado will wear in Spain for Mr. Gay World 2017.
The Rocky Gathercole ensemble is inspired by a combination of the Spanish and Pre-Colonial influences of the Philippines. The gold-embellished head piece was designed to symbolize the indigenous mythical demigod “Sipada”, a great warrior and patron deity of homosexuals in the Philippines. Since Mr. Gay World 2017 will be held with the symbol of the Spanish matador, it coincides with the month in which the pageant month will fall – Taurus – the Zodiac sign of May. This creation costs a total of US$5,000.00.
From all of us here at normannorman.com, we wish you all the best, John! We know that you are capable of bringing honor to the Philippines. Do us proud in Spain!
