Sebastian Castro and Ryan Chua

Peruvian-Japanese model and actor Sebastian Castro, who first became famous for his steamy video “Bubble,” celebrated his Christmas without his “bae” former ABS-CBN reporter, now Chinese state media CCTV editor Ryan Chua.

But Castro celebrated his Christmas with no other than the family of Chua here in the Philippines, for more additional boyfriend points.

They may be a West Philippine Sea apart, but the couple did not forget to keep in touch over the webcam. Castro celebrated his 26th birthday on Dec. 22, and Chua greeted Castro with a charming smile.


Castro and Chua have become a fixture as advocates during Philippine gay pride marches and are not afraid to show off their love.

Sebastian first came out when he was 17 years old. He was also thrown out by his family, devout members of the Jehovah’s Witness, and has since moved in to the Philippines to serve as an inspiration.
