Victor Basa

Victor Basa is a Philippine actor, photographer, and television personality.  He stars in the recent controversial series “My Husband’s Lover,” a show that takes a stand in the conversation on equality issues in Asia.  “It’s surprising and great to see that people know love when they see it,” says Victor.  He and his infinitely fabulous partner Divine Lee are in many ways arbiters of style in my home country, and Victor’s sense of dress represents the increasingly open-minded Filipino man: active, somewhat creative and appreciative of tailoring, and keenly global.  He cites the counter-culture movement, Hedi Slimane’s photography, and music of all genres as his inspiration.  He says, “Pop’s great.  People should listen to it sometimes, if they can get over themselves.”
