Mark Bautista is a Filipino singer, actor, commercial model who received his career break when he became a grand finalist on the Philippine reality TV talent search Star for a Quest where he placed second behind Sarah Geronimo.
Earlier this month, Mark finally admitted that he is a bisexual. His life was turned into an open book in his autobiography, Beyond the Mark. In this book, Mark Bautista wrote a detailed confession about his sexual orientation.
According to Mark: “I love both sexes and, if given the chance, I would love to have kids and settle down and have a family. I will just go where my heart takes me. If I end up with a woman, then great. But if my heart leads me to a man, then I would embrace that.”
In his book, Mark admitted to have been “intimate with a guy friend” who also happens to be an actor. He was no-holds-barred in confessing the details of his “affair” with this “male friend” who at that time he said had a girlfriend.
After Mark’s heartfelt revelations about his sexuality, he unfortunately lost friends in the process. But Mark reveals he’s prepared to lose some friends after coming out
“Kasi, yun yung isa sa mga fears mo na kapag nilabas mo ito, marami talagang magdi-distance sa ‘yo.
“Maraming… alam mo yun, hindi pabor sa ‘yo. So, hinanda ko yung sarili ko doon.
“So I was prepared.”
“Nakakatulog ako nang maayos, alam kong wala akong ginawang masama, and malinis, maayos ang intensiyon ko.”
Right now, Mark is busy with his series of shows and tours here and abroad. Also, included in his itineraries is the promotion of his book “Beyond The Mark.”
“Masaya naman ako, busy ako promoting my book, ine-enjoy ko lang ‘yung moment after releasing the book. Ang daming nag-co-connect sa akin, nakaka-relate sila sa story.”
