A recent photo shooting in Rio de Janeiro casting Marlon Teixeira (19) by the famous Terry Richardson (46) an American photographer known also for his male portraying, including gay porn models, is making a controversial buzz on the internet in Brazil.
Terry Richardson was in Rio for Blue Men swimwear 2012 campaign. Marlon Teixeira was among the models and also Lea T. a “female” model who is in fact a transexual currently popular in Brazil. Terry Richardson took the opportunity of this shooting and ask an additional and personal sequence to Marlon Teixeira.
Looking at the result, it seems that the two of them had a lot of fun. The pictures of Marlon on the beach of Ipanema are very suggestive and even provocative!
Their publication on internet raised a buzz in Brazil about the sexual orientation of Marlon! But when you read the comments it appears that Brazilian are still very machos, and they were more concerned about the “passive” attitude displayed by Teixeira on the pictures than the gay orientation they could suggest.
Here is an example of comment: (sorry maybe the translation is not 100% accurate)
“How much fun is in this test (just kidding right?), Did not suit well for him. That’s why I think nobody should be rooting for all aimed active gay. It is pretty accepted only to be active, or at least to give us this idea. Marlon has to remind this . Here he was giving an ugly image of passive. I have a doubt but that could scratch his international career.”
But definitively Marlon, even at the young age of 19 seems not giving too much attention to the gossip.
This young man has very open and determined mind, so he collaborated to the ONG “Viva a diferença” in a campaign against the breast cancer. That’s a sign of his personality and openness. (See the making of and some pictures of this campaign).
Now that you know more the guy, let’s come back to the title question and try to answer the question about it’s sexual orientation. The best is to let him talk and listen what he said in an interview given few days ago. The model, which posed a few weeks ago on the beach with T. Lea, said the test for the Blue Man next to the transsexual was like any other. And further explained that, unlike what they said they were not a romantic couple. “We did a couple. We were all at the beach and was supernormal, like any other model. We were working, was the photo they were asking “, he explained.
Later in the interview he said:
Besides surfing, Marlon has another passion: “I’m crazy for women, ” shoot the boy, who claims to have no preference for any profile. “All woman’s are beautiful”, he explains. The model also asserts that beauty is only at first priority. “We like to say that beauty does not attract attention, but it’s the first thing we see. But with continuity, loses its importance. What will matter is who she is even. “
Here are the elements … make your own judgment, but I’m sure that we all agree this boy is special and very hot….
