Bretman Rock graces the cover of Vogue Philippines during Pride month

Bretman Rock is the cover star of Vogue Philippine’s June issue. The June issue comes as the country prepares to celebrate Pride Month.

Rock was interviewed by Don Jaucian for the cover story. In the interview, the social media star and entrepreneur opened up about his career, being non-binary and his Filipino heritage.

“I’m too delusional. I’m in my own world, call me whatever you want. That’s why I go by all the genders… Girl, I’m Bretman. I’m not a woman, I’m not a man,” Rock said in the interview. “In the Philippines we call everybody ‘Ma’am/Sir.’ I call everything ‘girl,’ even when I refer to my dad… ‘I miss my girl.’ At the end of the day the person that needs to know who you are is you and the people that you love.”

The beauty influencer also recently spoke to HuffPost about his Filipino roots during AAPI heritage month. He explained why he wanted to share Filipino dishes he enjoyed with his Youtube audience.

“Before I even shared food with my audience, food has always been a huge part of my lineage, both sides of my family. My mom’s side of the family were obviously cooks. And then my dad’s side of the family they’re farmers. So we grow our food from my dad’s side, and then my mom’s side cooks it,” he said.

“I feel like people don’t really think about Filipino food or really any ethnic food there is. It’s really just an opportunity for me to share it with the world, because it’s always and will always be a part of my roots.”
