“For Playboy to have a male on the cover is a huge deal for the LGBT community, for my brown people community and it’s all so surreal. A total ‘is this even f——- happening right now?’ type of vibe. And I’m so pretty,” Rock is quoted by NBC News.

Anthony Allen Ramos, LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD’s head of talent, praised Playboy’s inclusion of Rock on its cover, calling it a ”powerful step forward in the ongoing movement towards greater diversity and inclusion in fashion and modeling.”

“My personal style is very much like who Bretman Rock is. Not giving a f*** and wearing whatever I feel cute in,” he is quoted as saying. “I look cute in this today but I could’ve done this s*** naked. Just saying.”
