World-renowned Asian-American bodybuilder, international underwear model, gay adult film producer, adult entertainer, và personality Peter Le graces our fair city with his presence on an annual basis, so we decided to talk lớn him khổng lồ find out just how he came lớn do what he does best: his club appearances at Funky. Of course, we also delved into lớn how his Asian heritage serves hlặng in the industry, in China specifically.
Le was born to lớn Vietnamese parents in California: “Growing up I was bullied because I am Asian. This made me focus on getting stronger, working out, & trying khổng lồ be more American. Almost lượt thích how a football player is built, but I did wrestling. Most Asian kids in high school, they play badminton, so I wanted lớn vày something totally different và be more American. I put my mind lớn working out and finding the best way to lớn improve my body toàn thân and my health. It got me lớn where I am today.”
But growing up, Le still felt a strong liên kết lớn his Asian heritage. “I vì chưng identify myself with being Asian as well, I can’t really speak Vietnamese that well, but enough to get by.

As to lớn constraints brought upon by China’s regulations on adult content, Le talks about the sales his brand is missing out on. “It’s lượt thích that joke about Trung Quốc, though, that we have sầu in America. There’s only one original copy of Windows in Trung Quốc and the software has spread like wildfire, but Microsoft’s point of view is that that is good, because now people are accustomed to lớn their layout.

He promises us that he will be baông chồng in Trung Quốc soon, và we will be sure to let you know when.
