Peter, the Stoli Guy San Diego winner, stole the show at the local Stoli Guy star search held at Rich’s and produced by GayCities. Peter impressed the judges, the crowd and the co-host Jai Rodriguez with his authentic Greek-style dance routine.
Now Peter is getting ready to head to New York City for the national finale. Will he be the one to claim the $10,000 prize?
What are you planning for your original talent showcase at the finale on September 18?
How did your friends and family react when you were crowned Stoli Guy 2014 in your hometown?
Extremely supportive, I have been in San Diego for some time now but the rally in support to represent Southern California has been overwhelming!
Being an LGBT ambassador for Stoli is an exciting job. Why do you think you’d be the best at it?
Filling the role of authentic and original for Stoli incorporates a much larger audience within the LGBT community, traits that an LGBT ambassador must have as it teaches us to steer clear of the differences we as human beings experience.
Why do you think being “authentic” is important in the LGBT community?
What inspired you to participate in Stoli Guy 2014?
My partner, I have always lacked confidence, some might find that strange but I believe many others can relate. Jon (my partner) has always been there for me in whatever I have wanted to do, from graduating college, moving to California, starting a career, to the finale of Stoli Guy — yes he will be in the audience! I can say without question that I couldn’t be where I am at today without him in my life.
Favorite Stoli Guy Cocktail: Future Husband (Stoli Original + Ginger Beer) hands down, you can never go wrong with ginger beer let alone Stoli. For those with a less citrusy thirst, there is no other equivalent.
