Cardo D, aka Vinzon Leojay Booc, told Gay Star News she was really happy for her friend Bruno Marshmallow.

‘After years of impersonating, Bruno noticed him’.

She also said it was another milestone in her career as a Youtuber as it reached more than a million views in only a week.

Cardo D said she was pleased for a chance to collaborate with Bruno Marshmallow.

She said the video took two weeks to prepare and make the costumes and two days to shoot.

‘It was really tiring but fulfilling as well’ she also said.

Released last month, the original music video for Please Me has been viewed 157 million times.

Lady Gagita

The 25-year-old vlogger and impersonator Vinzon Leojay Booc often performs as Lady Gagita and Katy Perya.

Last year ahead of World AIDS Day, she used her fame to encourage people to test for HIV.

The Philippines’ HIV crisis is one of the worst in the world, with a 174 percent increase in new infections since 2010, according to UNAIDS.

‘By doing the campaign on social media and by means of doing small things, people are now more aware of the phenomenon’ she told Gay Star News.

Booc also said more needs to be done to protect LGBTI individuals and people living with HIV.

‘There is still a stigma on the HIV scene especially the straight people. They think that the disease came from gay people.’

She also urged the government to enact the long-awaited SOGIE Equality Bill.
