Jose GV

@jose.established

Jose GV is a journalist by profession. He was born in Spain but grew up in South America. His family moved to Chile when he was a child, and that’s where he grew up and spent most of his childhood. Since coming back to Europe and settling in Paris he has been working freelance, writing and modeling as well. He worked in academic research for some time, within University departments mainly in Asia. Jose lived and worked there for years while studying Asian civilizations, countries and languages. He also did a lot of modeling work in Asia. One thing he’s been doing lately is contributing to Woofd.com, which allows him to write about LGBT issues and also share his travel experiences. Check out his Grooming Guide, Gay Pool Party Guide, and other posts.

Jose is happily married and considers him and his husband, Ben, his pack. They met in Seoul in 2011 at a bar when Jose had just arrived to begin doing research. They are very independent and enjoy doing things differently. But they love to occasionally meet their friends at parties and clubs. Jose likes reading a lot. But its either total fantasy and sci-fi or actual current events real stuff from magazines and such – that’s the journalist in him. He reads The Economist a lot, as it is his favorite magazine for real valuable content. He loves the Star Wars movies, as he grew up watching the old ones and will always love being transported to that fantasy world. Jose likes electronic music mainly. At home he prefers some more chill beats, and when going out he loves uplifting stuff. In general, he prefers more melodic music with vocals. All the gay circuit DJ remixes can be good for the party, but in his iPod playlist you will not find that.

Based In
Paris, France

“In Europe I must stay with my birth country, Spain.

Guys are fun and easy going. I love to party in Madrid.”

"I have traveled and lived all over the world, - South America, US, all over Asia and Europe."

 

One of Jose's favorite places in the world is definitely Bali, but the quiet areas of the island, up in the mountains or in the less touristy areas. He considers that island Magical. Thailand is also one of his favorite places on Earth. Jose loves the food, the fun, the beaches and Thai Boxing training. He also loves NYC, as it was his first big city he got the chance to explore and experience at a young age. Hong Kong and Tokyo are also very high on his list. Jose spent many years living and traveling in Asia and loves the culture, food in big Asian cities.

Jose spends a lot of time in the gym, like mixing up weight lifting with a bit of CrossFit. He has had lots of experience, having trained with professional coaches for years in the past. People at the gym think he is a coach actually.... but he only trains himself. He also loves Thai Boxing training. "I don't fight for real, I care about my face! ๐Ÿ˜› But as a way of training, cardio, flexibility, reflexes and agility it is indeed a great sport."

Jose loves that it combines punches, kicks and lots of other techniques, not just like traditional boxing. Because of his intense workouts, Jose loves wearing briefs, as he has really big thighs and quads, and he loves showing off the results of his workouts on Instagram.

"You must follow your own gut in life and be your own role model. Explore and discover who you are. Try things out. Get out there, and see the world."

Jose believes he has really fulfilled all the dreams he had ever imagined growing up and as a teenager. Traveled the world back and forth, lived and experienced different cultures and societies, achieved high goals in education, and learned to speak several different languages. All the things he wanted to do when he was a dreamy teenager. He even got married to a fantastic man, something he couldn't ever imagine and didn't even think of. Marriage wasn't an option for gay men and he also didn't know he even wanted to be ever married. He is so happy now. So now he would like to come up with new dreams with his husband. Their next dream together is to leave Paris and move to sunny Spain, find a nice place to settle in the Med Coast. Back to the place he was born, but now with his husband. This is their last year in Paris. After 3 years in Paris, they are definitely done. They need sun!
