Derzhis’Pavel. Vso budet a ne skoro
I respect this man and pray for his safety.
He shouldn’t feel safe. We need to get him out of there. He can stay with me.
Be strong, Pavel Petel, with your gorgeous self, and I pray for your safety.
It’s too bad everyone still thinks the U.S is the ‘land of the free”. I certainly don’t think Manning thinks that, or Snowden or Assange.
The U.S. is relatively gay-positive compared to other parts of the world, only because gays don’t threaten the power structure of the elites — the illegal wars killing thousands of people, banker bailouts and a government spying on the entire world.
I am really surprised some sleazy porn company has yet to try and get him to the states in exchange to do scenes.
The international community and western governments will never do anything about what is happening in Russia and neither will the IOC. There are literally dozens of countries which treat gay people even worse than the Russians, including imprisoning them or executing them, which are still getting aid or massive trade deals.
Compare this with the international outrage at apartheid. Those in power simply don’t give a shit. It’s way down their list.
time to buy this guy a ticket outta dodge
“Boycotts cause aggression, and Russian authorities would have more reasons to close the borders and internet.”
It seems that none of the gay people who have to actually live in Russia are in favor of a boycott. Maybe they know what they’re talking about?
It’s a word that’s starting to get very casually thrown around. I suspect that most of the Queerty posters who call for a “boycott” wouldn’t be able to define what it would involve. If they imagine a 1980-style government boycott, that’s not going to happen anyway.
I choose to boycott men like him who don’t care SHIT about gay people but rather how much they spend on his brand. It doesn’t take much digging to discover that this man is straight and merely gay for pay. He cares for gay propaganda merely because he is cashing in on it to make himself rich, not because he is gay or cares for gay human rights but rather so he can exploit it and feed of it for greed.
Come to my home, Pavel!
My husband and I will treat you very very well here in Sao Paulo, Brazil!
@the other Greg: Indeed!
@Jazpyy How do you figure that Pavel Petel is G4P? I don’t know what digging you have been doing but, you obviously
came up with half a conclusion. He’s has posted pictures of his boyfriend on instagram a number of times. Just because he preforms with women and his sex appeal lends to both parties doesn’t make him some douche gay4pay person, he’s a performance artist.
You should probably check all your facts before you make half ass comments about people.
@Dev.C: Not his boyfriend but his working partner who takes his pictures and is part of the “Naked DJ” duo that they form. Nothing about being gay together in life. There are videos of him on a TV show with his girlfriend. He is nothing more than a cash in, sorry.
@Jazpyy: Well I never heard of him before today, but obviously the point of this article is not that he’s gay (or not), but that he’s famous for his gay-adjacent performances and he’s in danger for appearing to be gay. If he’s beaten to death, his bashers probably won’t care if he’s “really” straight.
I’m sorry but why is it always up to the Americans to fix everyone else’s problems? We have our own problems to fix. Or is no one aware of the budget crisis that’s been going on for over a year now? Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for the gays of Russia. But I’m more concerned about what’s going on in my own damn country.
So when he lives his “straight” life it’s ok, but now that gay people are banned he started to care?
I read he was straight as well, so you may be right!
@Nyruinz: Looking through his Tumblr pics, it’s pretty clear he’s very much sexually into women. One woman in particular in several of the photos looks to be his girlfriend. His fear of safety in Russia is related to his transgender behavior (specifically parading around in women’s attire), not actually being gay himself. Sadly, news sources such as the Advocate are misrepresenting this by calling him an “openly gay model.” Nowhere in this interview does he say he is gay or even bi. He’s looking for someone to fund his way to the US…so yeah, he’s basically G4P.
Dammit…fucking spammers need to get a real job!!!!
Thank you, Queerty, for deleting that spammer’s post.
