‘It wasn’t easy for my family to accept my lifestyle but, even so, they are still my family and a part of me. My son Aarón Rodrigo is three-years-old. If he accepts me and loves me I don’t care about what other people would say. What matters to me is being happy and accepting myself. We will always be judged.’
Speaking further, he said;
‘Since I was a child, I’ve always liked what was different, extrovert and I am a comic fanatic and I love the Marvel Universe. For that reason I decided to be who I am now and I feel good with myself. That’s the most important thing.
‘I started this project around seven years ago. I wanted to turn myself into this amazing comic character who I’ve really admired since I was little. I feel like there are similarities between this character and I regarding to personality and attitude.
‘It is important to say that the only thing I don’t have in common with him is his Nazi ideology, As for his physical appearance, I’ve always been attracted to that unique shape, his extrovert personality and uniqueness,’ said Henry
