I never thought to consider the ranks of international male models as a base for those who will be coming out in 2012. Their sexuality always seemed to be a given. But evidently, like Olympic male ice skaters, the majority claim to be straight and homophobia looms large within the industry. Huh. Homophobia in the world of fashion. Right.
Be that as it may, the first celebrity to open the closet door in 2012 is Brazilian model Francisco Lachowski. Yeah, I know, Kristy McNichol, blah, blah blah. But she’s a has been who can’t even get a spot on Dancing With The Stars, and fish too boot.
The 20 year-old little hottie started his career in 2009 after winning a modeling contest in São Paulo. Currently ranked as the hottest Brazilian male model and 16th of the 50 Top Male Models, Francisco has worked for designers such as Gucci, Dior Homme, Armani, Mugler, and more. He’s become a familiar cover model and has appeared in magazines such as GQ, Vogue, and FHM, as well as in campaigns for DKNY, Armani Exchange, and D Squared.
Rumors about Francisco’s sexual orientation have circulated since his career in modeling took off, and he finally made it official during an interview with the Advocate magazine which will appear in their February 2012 issue.
