This recent WeHo transplant has developed a huge following on his social media due to a variety of factors, one being his incredibly handsome features like his captivating smile. 

Gustavo, like many of our Hottie of the Week choices before him, live sort of a dual life in and out of the gay community. By day, he is a clinical project associate (meaning he help's his company’s clients achieve their clinical studies), and by night (or weekends) he is an highly sought after go-go dancer in Los Angeles gay scene. Who wouldn't want to stuff a dollar or more in those shorts, any ways?



Here are some more fun facts about Gustavo:

  • He was born in Mexico and worked on a farm as a kid.
  • He's fluent in Japanese. 



  • Anime is his jam.
  • Documentaries really rev his engines, in particular ones about astrophysics and quantum mechanics (self-described "nerd"). 
  • His proudest life moment was graduating Valedictorian from his high school in Watts, California, 
  • He's very active in the LGBTQ community and participates in several marches and protests that advocate for our rights and services.
