The untold truth of Manny MUAFFOL Editor 1
As a proud member of the LGBTQ community, Gutierrez does his best to use his platform to raise awareness. He launched his first eyeshadow palette from Lunar Beauty in the month of June for a reason. “I’m a member of the LGBTQ community, and I feel like we need more representation,” he told Glamour.
“In the makeup world, especially, it’s always been really, really hard for men in beauty to kind of be seen in a way beyond being a ‘fad.’ That’s why I timed the launch to Pride month: not only to bring awareness to my brand and who I am, but also to bring awareness to the LGBTQ community as a whole.”
Gutierrez isn’t just repping his community, but also men in the beauty industry. “I feel like, as a whole, the world has shifted a bit,” he said. “People are much more accepting and are willing to go to bat for you nowadays.”
