“I’m a home buddy type and not fond of party at night. I qualify my self as a low-profile guy, I’m not good in both music and dance but I can do well in the kitchen. I’m passionate about modeling and serving the community through volunteer work. I’m not a text reader but more of an audio-visual type of guy.”

Rob on coming out & life as a gay man:
“I would never forget my 1st boyfriend (5 or 6 years ago). He was one of the essential part of who and what I am now. Our break up was turn to point of coming out to my family. I needed to tell my mom that I was heartbroken, the day I felt everything was falling apart, haha. One of the highlights of my coming out was when I joined the Metro Manila Pride march last year, I felt proud and inclusive. My life has definitely changed since I came out, I excel more at work.
As a bisexual myself, I can say that Manila has gone far better as a place to live for diversity and inclusion in this 21st century. People become more open, caring and liberated. However, I suggest to find group of friends or community that will help you feel safe and will stand back at you.
My favorite part about being gay would be a tendency to party like forever young. Keep calm & just parteeeee lol. While gay apps, bars and events are now too many to mention. Just be on top of it, keep it safe and protected. #LoveYourself lol.”
