敲一敲,瞧一瞧,谁来了?


去年的曼谷,一位单眼皮,身材精壮的男生初次登上GCircuit趴的舞台并让很多人眼前一亮, 一举成为亚洲同志趴的新贵。迅速窜红的他,社交媒体如Instagram的粉丝已暴增三倍并锐势未减。

当我们在东京的VITA趴和他初次接触时,发现台下的他更显帅气但也非常腼腆,让人无法想象他是如何穿上性感的服装在舞台上挥洒汗水。

就让我们带大家走进日本新晋go-go 舞者兼模特Alex Stone的世界吧!

 –
Element : 请你自我介绍。
Alex : 大家好,我是Alex,二十七岁,身高1.7米,体重72公斤。Alex是我的艺名。没表演时的我在日本是个普通的白领上班族。因为全职工作的关系,很抱歉我没办法和大家分享我的真名。

 –
Element : 你是从事哪一方面的工作呢?
Alex : 因为我曾在美国留学一年,所以英文能力还不错。目前我在日本的一家美国公司负责一些翻译的工作。

 –
Element : 你怎么会成为一名go-go舞者?
Alex : 其实我原本打算在2016年离开日本。当时的我想趁没离开前尝试更多新事物。成为go-go舞者是我列表中的第一件事。

 –
Element : 你已经到过哪些国家表演?
Alex : 我真的还算是个新人。我只在日本表演过数 次, 曼谷一次和新加坡一次。最近我才很幸运的到了首尔和中国表演。我现在最期待的是到台北表演并参与台湾同志大游行。

 –

Element : 现阶段的你对事业有什么理想?
Alex : 老实说,我在现任的工作上表现还不错,也得到过一些认可。可是我却少了一份归属感,总觉得别人甚至电脑随时都能替代我。所以我打算在今年离职后重返校园,专攻我特别有兴趣的美术。我真正渴望的是能够创造出只属于我自己的艺术品。

 –

Element : 谁是你的灵感来源?
Alex : 山下英子。她是日本出名的“杂物管理咨询师”兼“断舍离”理念的创始人。“断舍离”源自瑜伽学, 主要提倡通过“断绝不需要的东西;舍去多余的事物;脱离对物品的执着”来让生活过的更舒适。

这理念彻底改变了我的生活。我现在所拥有的东西不多过一百五十件。像我房间里就只有一张床,一个充电器和一些衣服。通过对日常家居环境的收拾整理,我的生活也变得更有空间和意义。

这个理念真的教了我很多并让我真正学会珍惜我身边的人和事。其实快乐一直存在,只是有时它太难以捉摸罢了。

 –

Element : 你相信爱情吗?
Alex : 我坚信爱情也希望有一天能和我未来的另一半结婚。只是近期内同志婚姻在日本应该不会合法化,所以我可能得离开日本才能实现这个梦想。其实我曾经差一点和一位英国国籍男生结婚然后定居欧洲,可是我当时不够勇敢所以就放弃了这一段感情。我现在单身。
 –
 

 –
Element : 谈谈你的感情观。
Alex :我觉得两个人在一起,懂得互相尊重非常重要,因为这样感情才能持久。我会无时无刻提醒自己做到这一点,也希望未来的男友也一样。

我没有特别喜欢的类型但高和有幽默感的男生比较容易吸引到我。
 –

Element : 你有什么忧缺点?
Alex : 优点应该是我很有礼貌吧,所以朋友总觉得这样的我很容易吃亏 。就像聚餐时常常可能变成我一个人付钱。我现在正在努力学习如何适当的说不。缺点的话,就是我真的太爱吃甜点了。

 –
Element : 你最想在哪里退休?
Alex : 洛杉矶。我喜欢那里的生活环境和同志文化,感觉大家的思想都比较开放也挺接受同志的。我爱国但也清楚在日本,同志还是无法在大庭广众下牵手而不被歧视。当然,我也不否定日本同志的社会地位已经逐渐地有所改善了。可是,我想能够随时随地的牵着我伴侣的手,所以洛杉矶会是个好选择。

 –
Element : 生活的其中一个座右铭?
Alex : 我最喜欢的一句日本引言是:我们只能在一个人死后才真正了解到他其实是曾经怎样活过的。就好比说一位生前善良又真实的人,死后也就会有更多人为他的离去而感到悲伤。相反的,一位尖酸刻薄又不懂得珍惜别人的人,应该就会孤独的死去。

我想活得更有意义,因此我在学习对所有事物都怀有一颗感恩的心。我希望能够老后回头一看时,发出微笑。
 –

Element : 最后你有什么想对读者说的吗?
Alex : 我去了好几个亚洲国家之后才惊觉毒品其实相当的盛行,因为这在日本并不常见。 我也对身边有朋友使用毒品而感到挺灰心的。生活本来就是个寻找快乐的旅程,而毒品只会使你逆道而行。所以我由衷地希望所有读者能坚决的对毒品说不。
