From A Farfetched Pageant Candidate To Being Mr. Fahrenheit 2016

 

Mister Gay World Philippines Organization (MGWPO) under the helm of Mr. Wilbert Tolentino has yet created another show stopper of this year’s Mr. Fahrenheit 2016. With the success of Christian Lacsamana, Mr. Fahrenheit 2015 and Mr. Gay World 2RU, in Mr. Gay World 2015, it is just proper that this year is a notch higher for the Philippines to have the very first crown of the said pageant. Fortunately, Mr. Fahrenheit has been a great training ground for our yet-to-be representatives.

Mister Fahrenheit has already been in its 14th year. For this reason, many gay men were able to showcase their talents, intelligence, and advocacies in changing the face of the stereotypical gay community. It has been joined in by gay men of different careers, colors, and perspective but of one strong goal of being a spokesperson for the gay community.

 

This year’s edition revolved in the horrific mass killing in Orlando that greatly affected the gay community. Armed with code names derived from men’s perfume brands, 19 gay and bisexual men battled their way to the top racing each others in their swimwear, formal wear, and of course the defining moment of our favorite Q&A.

 

In the end, Clive Christian or Lei Ponce became the most fragrant gay man to clinch the title. Despite him being just a rookie when in comes to joining pageants, he was able to beat his fellow candidates with his sculpted body, grace under casual wear, and wit with his boyish charm during the Q&A portion.

 

Obviously, Clive Christian or Lei Ponce in real life has been the man to beat during the finals. With the majority of club goers cheering for him and with him giving his best, he did not have a hard time to get the title.

 

Lei Ponce is a 31-year old from Nasugbu, Batangas who is a celebrity makeup artist by profession.

 

Here are some fun facts about Lei Ponce.

Yours truly with Mr. Fahrenheit 2016, Lei Ponce (Clive Christian)

 

Lei stands 5’11” and is the eldest child of Manuel and Milet Ponce.

 

He used to work as a Financial Market Data Analyst for one of the top financial intelligence providers in the world prior to engaging into makeup artistry.

 

Further, he obtained international certification in makeup artistry in Lasalle College International and Puspita Martha Tilaar in Indonesia. He won numerous awards in the field of makeup such as 1st runner-up avant-garde in Cosmetology 2011, Indonesia Beauty Gading Awards Best Country in 2012, ETC’s reality show Mega Fashion Crew season 2 best makeup artist and was recently nominated for last year’s Metro Manila Film Festival best festival make up artist.

 

In addition, he worked with top magazines in the Philippines as well as the known personalities in the field of Fashion, Showbiz, Business, and Lifestyle. He was a part of PDBF Triton Dragonboat team as Bow Paddler.

 

More so, he loves cooking, dancing and painting. He is currently one of the brand ambassadors of MAKE UP FOR EVER.

 

Well, it is no wonder to me then that most of his supporters during that night were top celebrity makeup artists and hairstylists that I have been following for quite a while already.

 

And the most surprising thing about Lei is that he is a first timer in this industry but he sure has something to offer. What more will his aces be once he finishes his training towards his journey as a farfetched pageant candidate to Mr. F 2016 and to Mr. Gay World Philippines and ultimately to Mr. Gay World?

The Top 6 were asked the same question about what they can say about the Orlando Massacre shown in a hashtag #StandForOrlando. Personally, the best candidate who gave the best answer for this was Ferrari Black when he made mention that regardless of how much we talk about it, the enemy is within us, not outside. He was definitely on point with that answer which also prompted me to make a blog about “Just How Self-Stigmatizing Is The Gay Spectrum In the LGBT Community?
