Last seen in Bench’s controversial Valentine’s Day campaign, Vince Uy and Niño Gaddi appeared on the cover of Team, a gay magazine.
Editor Paolo Lorenzana spoke about his cover choice for the thoughtful new publication.
“We were pleasantly surprised by how well Vince and Niño were received and defended by the public,” he said. “It was Manila celebrating its first real gay couple. Neither were comedians in drag nor hot straights playing gay on a soap opera. Just two guys celebrating five years of being together.”
A handsome, thoughtful publication.
In the cover story, Uy said they personally received many positive messages “not about being gay but about being gay and in a relationship today.”
Successful in both love and their careers (Uy is the creative director of Preview and Gaddi an event organizer), the pair embodies Team's tagline: "Goals & Mates."
It will come out four times a year, with the next issue in August.
