Davidré, the Stoli Guy Dallas winner, danced his way into the hearts of Dallas party-goers at the Round-Up Saloon during the GayCities-produced star search. His tumbling and dead dropping even had the talented guest co-host Alyssa Edwards gagging for more.
Now Davidré is getting ready to travel to New York City for the national finale. Will he be the one to claim the $10,000 prize?
Can you give us a little teaser of what your original talent showcase will be at the finale on September 18?
My original talent will be me doing a choreography routine to a mix track. I don’t want to reveal too much just yet, but I can say New York better be ready for me.
How did your friends and family react when you won Stoli Guy 2014 in your hometown?
Everyone was excited for me that I won, just congratulating me and telling me to keep up the good work when I go represent Dallas at the finale.
Being an LGBT ambassador for Stoli is an exciting job. Why do you think you’d be the best at it?
Best just at being myself, people respect you more when you are honest and genuine and actually care about something.
Why do you think being “authentic” is important in the LGBT community?
Being authentic is about being yourself, and owning who you are and not allowing others to decide life choices. Because at the end of the day, only you answer for how you live your life.
What inspired you to participate in Stoli Guy 2014?
This is the first competition I’ve ever done. The fact that they were looking for the right mix of talent and personality really inspired me to be a part.
Favorite Stoli Guy Cocktail: Boy Next Door (Stoli Blueberi + Lemonade) for sure!
Killer smile… but lose the color contacts.
@Xzamilio: Looks like he was actually voguing too. This kid is obviously stuck in the 90’s. lol
“Being authentic is about being yourself, and owning who you are ”
Yet you’re wearing blue contacts. Chile plz!
Stop trying to make Stoli Guy happen. It is not going to happen.
@Xzamilio: You can’t be that ignorant. He can’t have eyes that color because he’s Black? How do YOU know he’s wearing contacts? I guess Vanessa Williams, James Earl Jones, Michael Ealy, Stacey Dash, Rihanna, Gary Dourdan, Terrence Howard, Natalie Cole, Tyra Banks, Jesse Williams, etc. wear contacts.
@Black Pegasus: That was mean. Maybe he is being “authentic” about just who HE is. Think about it for a minute before you reply (smile).
Some people, regardless of race are able to look good with different eye colors, rather they are natural or contacts, so in the end, I don’t really think it matters as long as they look good with their features.
@odawg: You can’t be that sensitive. If they’re real, he has the most fake-looking blue eyes I’ve ever seen. All the people you mentioned are mixed or much lighter than this guy. The blue-gray looks odd/artificial on him.
@Masc Pride: Natalie Cole…ok if you say so
His dancing was quite amazing!
@odawg: You can’t be that dense. Those are clearly contacts, and as a black man, you can miss me with that “Because he’s black” crap. You named all famous celebrities who have direct non-black blood in their families (one white parent or grandparent), or genetic mutations. His black ass is wearing blue colored contacts… I’ve seen too many of those to not know it when I see it. You keep living in lala land if you want to…
Blue contacts….. brother why!?! You look good enough without them. Btw. Voguing is still a huge part of the ballroom scene today, but I guess you’d have to actually be involved in the black gay community to know about it.
@odawg: I also like how not a SINGLE GUY you mentioned was his complexion or had TWO black parents… they were all lighter skinned. Name a black guy his color with blue eyes… that isn’t a baby you can find with a Google search (I already know the one). And I’m not saying there aren’t black guys his color with natural blue/green eyes (Lee Thompson Young should have been where you went, but hazel is a common eye color with black men), but THIS dude? No…. those are contacts. Now get some neosporin and some gauze and tend to those hurt feelings.
He has a very cute face, nice body, and personally I think the contacts (if they really are contacts) enhance his appearance. People get real. Just look at his eyes for what they are and quit being so judgmental. He can also dance his little ass off and sounds very articulate in his speech. I understood every word he said.
I can’t believe there are people on the internet who are sitting on the internet and shocked that black people are capable of having blue eyes.
Especially when you’re.. *sitting on the internet*… You can little just head to google and you’d see people with darker skin tone than this guy who also have blue eyes.
Lol, madness. People have the entire world’s information at their fingertips and they still opt for ignorance.
@odawg: and ME! LOL I wish I had a dollar for the number of people who have assumed I have contacts on. My usual response, if I am in a good mood, is to rub my eyes which one would never do with contacts on. My Father had blue/grey eyes so it is possible. Now that said, it would be rather unusual for someone with his other physical characteristics to have blue eyes but it could happen. If he does have blue contacts on what an awful, self loathing thing to do. Before you pc people try and call me out, blue contacts on a Black person has more than cosmetic implications.
@Xzamilio: my dear queen, save up your government checks and take a trip to Brazil or South Africa. Once you solve the problem of finding a Greyhound that will get you there, you will discover all sorts of color combinations that are God given. Now if he would only give you a brain like the scarecrow.
@stanhope: “Government checks”? Is that supposed to mean something? Oh I get it… because when all else fails, assume someone identifying as black is on government assistance… even though your black ass just identified yourself as black… and with blue eyes. How lovely… do you have a picture to back that up, or do all you have to bring to the table are your delusions of grandeur and your stale humor that is best left to the trolls on Yahoo? It’s funny how you name places where multiple races exist and mix… nah, where are all the blue eyed brothas and sistas HERE? You know, since it’s apparently so common in our race.
@Bob LaBlah: “Sounds very articulate in his speech.” You know, that’s not the compliment you think it is. Pointing that he can “talk real good” is really backhanded, since it doesn’t take much to actually speak properly… but I guess the fact that he can get out two sentences without uttering “Know what I’m sayin'” or “Shawty” means a lot, huh? Also, they [his eyes] aren’t even the feature that draws the most attention… it’s his perfect smile.
And by the way, it wasn’t even that serious until you bitter queens decided to make a mountain out of a molehill. Dumb asses have nothing better to do than get offended over an anonymous person’s opinion. Get out the butterfly net and catch your feelings… acting like the world ended because somebody called out a dude for wearing color contacts… as if that is SO RARE in the black community. Man, please
Anyone just happy that a good looking black guy won? Usually on every Queerty post all I see are comments about the lack of diversity and how there’s never any pics of black guys. Now here’s one and look at the comments fly–bitching about something else wrong.
Not really sure what all the fuss is about, whether they are contacts or real. That’s why they make colored contact lenses, so that people can change their eye color when they feel like it.
@Xzamilio: LMAO! you’re deflecting bullets better than Wonder Woman could’ve ever dreamed of. And issuing smack downs like Superman.
You’re my hero for the moment 🙂
@Black Pegasus: I’ll even help them. Randall Cobb of the Green Bay Packers. Dark skinned black guy with natural green eyes. Gotta do their job for them… ole boy copying and pasting from the first site that pops up on Google. I mean, he was ready for me lol!!
“Stoli Guy Dallas Winner Davidré Dead Drops To The Top” – “Drops To The Top”? Is that the like “Reached rock bottom and kept on digging”?
@Xzamilio: no doubt you are a bitter bitch self tormenting because you are not of fair hue. LOL. Well not to worry, you have plenty of company. As we say in the South, throw a brick in a pack of bitches the one that gets hit hollers loudest. Your vitriolic comments will change neither your color, your hair texture nor your attractiveness. Mercifully, though you may resemble the wicked witch of the west your powers won’t change mine either. I clearly got the better end of that deal.
@stanhope: Praise the lord and pass the bricks.
@stanhope: You’re that pressed about a comment about color contacts? What did I say about his skin color? His face? His body? His hair? His personality? Save the reading for the library, because when faceless blurbs on the internet try to do it, they end up looking as sad as they probably are in life. What deal did you “clearly” get? Because what I see is someone who is practically slobbing on his own knob about how good he looks, but has a blank profile picture that looks just like my blank profile picture. But you keep telling me how sexy you are… I guess if you say it enough, you’ll start believing it. And what part of the south are you from that says that seed-shucking back woods country ass colloquialism? Only one I see getting salty is you and the rest of you queens acting like your dog died because I said dude has blue contacts.
Three days later, and pressed bitches are STILL trying to come at me. Get your feelings, peanut gallery… your life will go on despite ole boy got called out for wearing contacts. And then to act like some 12 year old girls and try to go for personal insults on somebody you don’t even know.
@stanhope: I strongly suggest you and @Bob LaBlah link up offline and strike up a relationship, because it is clear you two will die alone. Just an observation…
