Several years ago, he was gay-magazine stud-fodder. He was once part of the Cover Boys, a group of bare-all dancers who did the rounds of Manila’s gay bars then. Rusty Elizalde, as he was once known [photo below], has since hopped from one bar to another as an exotic dancer. He was also Malate district’s token go-go boy in the annual White Party and Gay Pride events. Now, he has resurrected and has taken on the name Kalvin [see photos above].
Perry Escano was only 18 years old at the time the picture above [red photo] was taken. Several years later, he is back in the movies, most notable of which are Twilight Dancers [promotional pic shown above, the one in the bamboo] and Compound [pics below]. Apparently he has gone back to theater, while the movie offers waned then.
From his resume: Perry Escano started as a performer on Philippine stage. He played the lead role of Lapu-Lapu, Philippine’s first hero, in Mactan 1521. Other credits include El Filibusterismo, Laro, Florante at Laura, Silang Magigiting, Pangarap sa Isang Gabi ng Gitnang Tag-araw, Ang Tahanan ni Bernarda Alba, and May Isang Sundalo. Perry also played roles in the Philippine independent films Sitak and Kazuma vs. Amuzak.
Joel Posadas is another veteran bikini pageant contestant, even when he was plump [pics above] until he trimmed down [pics below]. Last seen at the Mr. Kouros 2006 [won by Merick Lumagui], 23-year old and 6′ tall Joel Posadas aka Jeric Ramirez aka Carlos Martinez, is a native of Pangasinan province and still a student at the Philippine Merchant Marine School in Las Pinas City. Expect to see more of this daring dude in the next few months as the summer season spawns swimsuit shows.
Pixie-faced Dennis “Denden” Dimalibot shot to minor fame when he bagged the Mr. Kouros 2005 title. Of course, he had to be in a bikini there. From there, this Oriental Mindoro native was cast as one of the models in the Cosmopolitan Philippines magazine’s 69th Street Bachelors’ Bash last year. This 21-year old guy has also done modeling stints for designers in the metro.
