The magazine shared a short video of Bretman which sees him wearing black corset and black bunny ears with a bowtie. He completed the look with platform heels.

This isn’t Bretman’s first magazine appearance as he was previously on the cover of Gay Times in 2019.

Bretman talks Playboy cover

Bretman is over the moon to be on the cover of Playboy magazine and shared why he feels excited about the opportunity.

Speaking to the magazine, he said:

“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***ing happening right now?’ type of vibe. And I’m so pretty.”

Playboy closed its print edition in 2020 and went digital.

Last year, Bad Bunny, who is LGBT+ ally, made history after appearing as the first male on the magazine since the late Hugh Hefner.
