large_20Meet Matt, a Stoli Guy finalist and bartender from Boston.

Matt put on a showstopping performance at the local finale dressed like a total superstar. Now this performer wants you to vote for him so that he may get the chance to represent Stoli, appear in an Andrew Christian campaign and win a dream vacation in Key West.

Queerty got to chat exclusively with Matt, a former King of Boston Pride, about how to let go of negative experiences to reach for your dreams!

Have you been to New York City before? If so, what’s your favorite place?

Last time I was in New York City was this past February. I had taken my boyfriend at the time for a few day because he had never been. It was an amazing trip. To say what my favorite place there is, is kind of tough. I love everything about NYC. But if i had to choose it would be Time Square. It’s an inspiring place to visit.

Being an LGBT ambassador for Stoli is an exciting job. Why do you think you’d be the best at it?

To be out here in the community and spreading the word is a big job, a job that comes with great satisfaction. It takes a lot of pride to inform, touch or educate the LGBT community. To touch people in that way, that’s satisfying enough for me.

What’s your advice for anyone looking to become one of The Most Original Stoli Guys in the country?

Go for it. Reach for the stars. In order to make the most out of your life, you must first take control of your life and not let people’s opinions or your past negative experiences shape the direction your life is headed in. Once you do that, just set your mind on your goal, reach for the stars and you will accomplish your dreams!
