Daddy Daze<br />

Anthony Varrecchia is the fourth of six New Yorkers<br />

we’re profiling who can be found on the world’s<br />

premier gay social network, Hornet<br />

You’re allowed to call Anthony Varrecchia “Daddy.”<br />

Through his work as a model, this rugged, scruffy New Yorker proves<br />

that beauty has no age limit. His followers on Instagram agree, as he<br />

has amassed 143,000 pairs of eyes that swoon over every pic he posts.<br />

From gym selfies to cups of coffee in bed, they can’t get enough of<br />

Varrecchia, and neither can we.<br />

We spoke with Varrecchia about his journey - going<br />

from social media influencer to billboard model -<br />

and what he loves most about New York City.<br />

What is your favorite thing<br />

about the gay community here in<br />

New York City?<br />

I always refer to NYC as my Emerald<br />

City. It’s where I can be comfortable<br />

with who I am. When I entered the<br />

scene here, my world expanded.<br />

I’ve met the most interesting people<br />

and have made lifelong friends. My<br />

husband pulled me away from Staten<br />

Island and brought me here. After<br />

that, my world opened.<br />

What are some of the brands<br />

you’ve worked with as a model<br />

and influencer?<br />

The creator of Sheehan and<br />

Company reached out to me. We<br />

have a very similar look. He thought<br />

I’d be perfect to model his brand,<br />

and it’s an amazing company. From<br />

the apparel to the accessories,<br />

I love it all. I promoted Silber Fuchs<br />

NYC for a while, where I learned<br />

one thing: When you reach a certain<br />

number, the whole world changes.<br />

There is money to be made. I’m very<br />

lucky to be collaborating with a few<br />

other companies as well.<br />

How do you stay in shape?<br />

I work out every day, and I’m mindful of<br />

my diet. I’m also a trainer at Equinox.<br />

My body is my calling card.<br />

What are some of your favorite<br />

things to do around New York?<br />

Ride my bike! I love the feeling of the<br />

wind in my face! I’m also a huge coffee<br />

fanatic. I love visiting different cafés<br />

around the city.<br />

Do you like it when guys call you<br />

“Daddy”?<br />

I welcome it. I have absolutely no<br />

problem with it. I take pride in my age<br />

and the whole “silver fox” label. It’s<br />

fun. I belong to an agency in Australia<br />

called Silver Fox Management. They<br />

came across me through social media,<br />

and I accepted.<br />

What is the sexiest part of a man for<br />

you?<br />

Charisma, style, confidence and a<br />

great smile.<br />

Any projects coming up?<br />

I created my own brand, Anthony<br />

Varrecchia Limited, with apparel and<br />

accessories. The designs are all ready,<br />

and I’m just waiting for my funding<br />

to come through. I hit a bump in the<br />

road, but it’ll be out there soon. I<br />

have big plans down the road. I also<br />

belong to a few agencies and hope to<br />

continue to do more print work and<br />

travel. This past December, I was cast<br />

for the “Stay Sure” HIV campaign,<br />

promoting PrEP, PEP and TasP. It’s a<br />

project I’m proud to be part of, and<br />

it was very personal for me. Seeing<br />

myself on two billboards and countless<br />

ads all over New York City and on the<br />

side of a bus has just blown my mind.<br />

Hornet is currently available<br />

on iOS, Android and the web.

PART THREE<br />

The Lawyer<br />

BY IAN-MICHAEL BERGERON<br />

@ianmichaelinwonderland<br />

Missed part<br />

one and two? Read it on<br />

getoutmag.com!<br />

J spent the weekend<br />

in Paris, and I spent the<br />

weekend freaking out.<br />

I didn’t know if I liked J<br />

as much as he liked me; I<br />

certainly didn’t talk about<br />

him as much as he talked<br />

about me—or, as much as<br />

I gathered he did from the<br />

regulars at his favorite bar.<br />

But I did like J, and he was<br />

exactly my type. I wanted to<br />

get to know him better.<br />

I decided I needed to ask<br />

him on an actual date. It<br />

would be unexpected for me<br />

to do the asking, and maybe<br />

we’d find out that we’re<br />

perfect for each other and<br />

get married and adopt some<br />

children, and I would walk<br />

around with that Prada bag<br />

I always wanted but couldn’t<br />

afford.<br />

“I decided we should go out<br />

when you’re back,” I text<br />

him.<br />

“Ok!” he texted back. That<br />

was it: Ok.<br />

I spent hours deciphering<br />

what “Ok!” meant, because<br />

I am a crazy person. I finally<br />

responded, “Monday? 8?<br />

Mickey Spillane’s?”<br />

“Ok!” again. My anxiety<br />

level went through the roof.<br />

We got a table, ordered two<br />

frozen margaritas and settled<br />

in. “I have something to tell<br />

you,” he said, beaming.<br />

I leaned forward, pursing my<br />

lips. “Yes?”<br />

“I’m falling in love.”<br />

My mouth fell open.<br />

“Really?”<br />

“Yes. At first, I thought it was<br />

just the slender frame, or<br />

the bright hazel eyes, or the<br />

blonde hair.” I ran my hands<br />

through my well-conditioned<br />

hair, glad that I did my roots<br />

over the weekend. “But it’s<br />

so much more than that. I…”<br />

He looked me in the eyes.<br />

“I’m in love.”<br />

“I didn’t expect that,” I said.<br />

The waiter brought our<br />

drinks.<br />

“Me either! I mean, what,<br />

am I going to go visit Paris<br />

every weekend to see him?”<br />

My heart dropped. He wasn’t<br />

talking about me. I sucked<br />

on the straw of my margarita<br />

as hard as I could. “You fell<br />

in love this weekend?”<br />

“Yes!” he exclaimed joyfully,<br />

like a child talking about a<br />

new toy he wanted. “He’s<br />

the one; I know it. Well,<br />

maybe not THE one. That’s<br />

some blonde boy I’ve known<br />

forever, but he’s married. He<br />

and I are perfect for each<br />

other, he just doesn’t know<br />

it yet.”<br />

“…Have you told him?”<br />

“Of course not! I was at his<br />

wedding last year.”<br />

I had a sneaking suspicion<br />

that J didn’t love Paris boy,<br />

or married boy, or me. J<br />

loved falling in love. And I fit<br />

the young, blonde mold that<br />

he’d become accustomed<br />

to.<br />

I shook my head. “I’m glad<br />

we’re friends,” I said. And I<br />

meant it.<br />

“Me too. You know, there<br />

is another boy who I think<br />

loves me, in Texas. Maybe<br />

I should go there next<br />

weekend instead.” I took his<br />

hand under the table and<br />

squeezed it.<br />

“Only if you tell<br />

me all about<br />

it,” I<br />

smiled.<br />
