Bretman Rock is Playboy’s first openly gay male cover star
Bretman Rock has donned Playboy’s famed bunny ears and become the first out gay man to star on its cover.
“For Playboy to have a male on the cover is a huge deal for the LGBT community, for my brown people community, and it’s all so surreal,” Rock is quoted as saying on Playboy’s Instagram page. Rock has worked with the brand before, producing clothing with them, but it’s his first time posing in an editorial for the magazine.
Rock recently showed up to the MTV Video Music Awards wearing a tribute to the late singer Aaliyah — the black and yellow Roberto Cavalli dress she wore to the event in 2001. And though Rock is known for his glamorous looks, he told Playboy his personal style has more of a sense of ease to it.
“My personal style is very much like who Bretman Rock is. Not giving a f*** and wearing whatever I feel cute in,” he is quoted as saying. “I look cute in this today but I could’ve done this s*** naked. Just saying.”
