Mikey Bustos is an insanely popular social media influencer with over 880K YouTube subscribers and almost 150 million video views plus over 125K Instagram followers and another 100K on Twitter.
In an Instagram post this week, the 37-year-old Filipino-Canadian comedian made a big reveal: He’s a proud member of the LGBTQ community! Not just that, but he’s got a boyfriend, RJ Garcia, who also happens to be his manager.
The first photo was captioned, “Happy Easter! #NewLife,” while a second photo was captioned “Freedom.” Both included an emoji of a rainbow flag.
Meanwhile, RJ shared his own photo of himself and Mikey to his Instagram page, along with the caption: “Exact opposites, but a perfect match!”
Mikey followed up his initial posts with another photo of himself in a pair of rainbow sunglasses.
“Life is sweet!” he wrote in the caption, adding that it never crossed his mind that would receive so much support sent from “all corners of cyberspace, media, and the world.”
“Figuring out how to navigate life in the most authentic and positive way has been such a long +37 yr journey for me, and at this moment, I feel I’ve reached some kind of karmic jackpot!”
He continued, “It’s 2019 (as my dad put it when I came out to him a few weeks ago), and a great time to be alive LGBT. #FilipinoPRIDE“
Before becoming the social media sensation he is today, Mikey competed in the reality television show Canadian Idol. Since then he has become known for his song parodies and other hilarious videos that feature his Filipino culture and traditions.
