Out isn’t the only fag rag with summer on its mind. Instinct magazine’s February issue gets wet and moderately wild with the first openly gay Chippendale’s dancer, Brandon Pereyda.
From the titillating press release:
Instinct travels to Sin City for its February swimsuit issue cover story on aerialist Brandon Pereyda, the first openly-gay performer in the world famous Chippendales troupe. Instinct editor Mike Wood spent a weekend following 23-year-old Pereyda around Vegas to find out what it’s like to be the lone “out” member of the shirtless, bow-tie-wearing institution – and how he feels about performing in front of countless screaming women each night!
“I guess it is monumental for this company,” Pereyda notes. “Chippendales guys are often pegged as being gay. And they’re not. And I think this will clear the slate.” He continues, “They’re all straight, but we would do anything for each other and that’s what I really love about working here. They don’t view my be gay as a negative thing at all.”
Duh! Doesn’t everyone know that strippers – sorry, exotic dancers – are the most progressive population? It’s a totally unproven fact.
The eyebrows, and that thing growing out of his chin are frightening.
And his hair is just wrong.
Yeah, this dude scares me–Instinct’s Vampire issue!
Yeah. It’s churlish to complain, but he has Vulcan eyebrows, a Fu Manchu beard and abs that look like a second pair of pecs.
Fucking hot! I’d hit it in a minute!

the models in the pictures aren’t the guy on the mag cover. And aren’t all of these mags either “the underwear issue” or “the swimsuit issue”? ‘cuz, ya know, underwear & swimsuit fashions change so often.
he looks like a monster. Also, those abs are too much.
You’re right, HKG. The one with the tattooed stomach is ex gay-for-pay porn star Jonathan West, and I don’t know who the blond is. Perhaps they’re fellow Chips?
That is the scariest, ugliest – most frightening cover, ever. I cannot believe how bad this is….it makes me want to vomit!!!
He’s sizzling hot!!! Wow, incredible…I’d like that Chippendales dancer to give me a lap dance any time!
Ew ew ew he is so gross. His stomach looks like it’s about to eat itself. And yeah, I’m a dyke, but I can still appreciate a fine-lookin’ fella, and this is not one. And I still think it’s BS that all the other Chippendale’s dancers are straight. Being in the closet does not equal straight.
his abs are fucking freaky and not in a good way
“Chippendales guys are often pegged as being gay. And they’re not. And I think this will clear the slate…They’re all straight…”
Yeah. Just like all the men in Playgirl are staight.
I think this guy is hot! Yeah, he’s not the typical twink we may see in Instinct. But he’s a little goth, a little different and I say good for them for giving us something different.
I’d take him anyday; he’s cute. Great smile! Anyone that young who works out , isn’t overweight and pulls in their stomachs will have abs that look somewhat like that. The airbrush artist clearly overworked his stomach, unfortunately. Look at the area around his nose also.
I am with you…something funky with that tummy.
It almost looks deformed and I have yet to ever see a person this orange.
He’s no Henry Rollins.
nobody with a brain with kick that out of bed…fat jealous guys shut up!!
Fat and jealous? How about, we’re people who can tell the difference between a real person and something that’s been extensively photo-shopped.
gay as life
Good for him for being out, but he looks like a typical Chippendale. By which I mean he looks manufactured and plastic.
i am fat, and i am jealous, and if i were single, young, attractive, rich (etc) i would never throw him out of bed.
you have to admit though that something is funky with those abs or is that just the way they roll?
Nice face but his eyebrows are ridiculously overdone and his abs look like something out of Aliens. Really freaky!
Hey guys… ever try rolling down those silks? The ones that hnag like 50 feet from the ceiling. Yeah, that’ll give you abs like that. and those are real. I’ve see the show… and he looks like. No photoshop needed. He’s super hot…and I love the eyebrows! Sinister HOT!

I think his abs look fantastic.
My question is…seriously…..(i have never had stomach muscles) do some stomach muscles develop more than others or are they not equal?
Also, look at his eyebrows and the scroll up and look at those of Amy Winehouse…….

You can work out and get great abs, but unless you diet, they’ll just be great ab muscles under a thick layer of flab. That’s why they look so great – they’re the result of real dedication.
I really think people who put them down are doing it from sour grapes. What makes a man (or woman) great looking is encoded in our DNA.
Angel, come on … there is not a single magazine out there (gay straight or neutral) that does not photoshop their models beyond recognition these days.
well then, i think he needs a lil more layer of flab over those abs.
shoot that shit aint right. girl needs to eat a sandwhich, i am sure he is starving..
better be careful though, i am sure a turkery, roaast beef or ham sandwhich would give him the runny grunt. prolly not used to mcuh beyond eggs and protein shakes bars and such.
Yes, HKguy, 6 pack abs often do show a great deal of dedication, and some good DNA. Often times, though, it’s an egotistical and vain dedication to themselves, and after 2 hours of cardio and counting calories and carbs, there’s no time left over to read a book or follow politics. So, most guys who end up on the covers of magazines or wander around your gym with a 6 pack are often fake and dumb as toast.
Am I jealous? Yes. Am I fat? No. I’m just fed up that stupid pretty people get a lot more breaks, and I get dumb/weird looks when I quote historical figures.
You guys are funny….Im Brandon Pereyda….reading all of your comments make me laugh. To be honest with you I eat whatever I want…..gymnastics and aerial training and performing has kept me in the shape that I am. You are all entitled though to your opinions…although it is sad how the gay community would be so harsh on one of their own. Take care guys
Let me set the record straight for every single one of you that had nothing better to do than pick apart my friend and roommate Brandon. I find it so sad that your lives are so vacant that you feel the need to make derogatory remarks ( for those of you simple minded, that means belittle) about someone whom you never met or don’t know. It’s sad that instead of being supportive you feel the need to pick apart his looks. Since when did coming to terms with your sexuality and who you chose to be and love in your love have anything to do with looks. He and and everyone else has had to deal with plenty of others who look down upon his choices, he should’t have to deal with the people that went through the same struggle ripping him apart. You should be ashamed of yourselves not only as part of the gay society but as a person. I wonder if any of you will do anything with your life except try to make it sorry it had the bad luck to fall into you!
A lot of jealousy on this page. For the record, Brandon is a great guy and there is NOTHING wrong with his abs. Trust me. He’s a more genuine person than the judgmental posters on this blog could ever aspire to be, and has more talent than they could ever hope to have.
Rowen, I’m smart and pretty. I’m sorry you can’t pull it off. Besides, I’d much rather look at the cover of this magazine than listen to you quote Socrates. I’m sure you’re a really cool guy though.
I’m glad Brandon, Angel and Ewok showed up here and posted. It shows that the man on that mag cover is a real human being, not something set up for us to ridicule. The gay community is all too quick to confuse cruelty with humour.
This guy is gorgeous. I’ve seen him in his show and met him in person. He’s not only a sweetheart and a beautiful man, he is amazingingly talented as well.
What a BRAVE move to come “out” to the world in this magazine when you are in a show that is intended for women. He has serious guts and we should be applauding him for it, not picking him apart. If we, as gay men (and women) don’t stand united, then we just make it easier for others to keep us down.
I think everyone has missed the point of Brandon appearing in this magazine. And we should saying BRAVO…”Bravo Brandon!”
…and thats NOT airbrushing

Rowen: Hate to break it to you, but I know a lot of guys who are in fabulous shape who are smart and even well read. Don’t stereotype, or you fall in the same trap as guys who stereotype out-of-shape guys.
Brandon is very talented and a wonderful person, I am lucky to have him in my life 🙂
He is totaly HOT and looks like a sweetheart. The only bad thing about this cover is that I have seen it before I will recieve it at home. I liked to be surprised each month when i open it up
Trust me, the pictures in Instinct DO NOT do him justice. I have seen him perform and “happened” up on his birthday party last year at Krave in Vegas. This guy is fucking hot!!! To top it off he is also sincere and a decent human being. Why is everyone so inflamed over a gorgeous guy with talent, brains, heart and a little bit of fame? Sounds like the total, perfect package to me!
