John Jeffrey Janjep Carlos is the man of the hour who will travel to Cape Town, South Africa to represent the Philippines in Mr Gay World 2019 from April 28-May 4. He was given a fitting sendoff by his National Director, Wilbert Tolentino.
Janjep is a successful businessman and realtor who also happens to be a great dancer. A former volleyball athlete and varsity player of the Cavite State University, he loves spending most of his free time at the gym and workout with his friends.
Joining the national search is something that Janjep decided on a snap. In fact, he joined twice before finally bagging the title of Mr. Fahrenheit 2019 which automatically made him Mr. Gay World Philippines 2019. “That’s how motivated I am to get this title.” he added.
This hunky 41 year old Caviteño will have “Mental Health Awareness” as his main advocacy for the international competition. He even came up with his own hashtag for his campaign – #IllnessToWellness.
“I think it’s very timely and relevant. We’ve heard so much about mental health issues and it’s getting worse. In my own little way, I want to spread awareness about depression so people will know what to do in case they feel some of the symptoms of this psychiatric illness is affecting us and our loved ones.”
His final message to the Filipinos?
“My vision is not just to live but to exist. I promise that I will give my best so that I can represent my country well and they can be proud of me. Thank you guys for following my journey. I’ll be needing your much love and support in the upcoming Mr Gay World 2019.”
