5 Minutes

After one night you’ve met a lot of people, who all had their own reasons for going out. Who are they, what’s behind the ‘nightlife attitude’? In this column we try to lift a tip of the veil. Maybe you’ll be the next one to be asked to tell us a little bit about yourself.

We get acquainted with a random visitor of the gay scene in just ‘5 minutes’. See how many questions we can cram into that short a time!

Our first victim is Brent de Lannee de Bretancourt from Oss (40)

On just a regular Monday night at around 9pm in the April Bar we ran into Brent.

Are you a party animal or a couch potato?
A party animal without a doubt!!! My favorite place is The Lux in Antwerp. Nice people and a good atmosphere. But I like the April as well.

What do you think is the best (gay) party?
Private parties with people you know at home are usually the best. It’s familiar, comfortable and you can be yourself!

Morning person or night fly?
I’m horrible in the morning so I’d have to say night fly.

What’s your favorite drink?
A nice cold beer!

What did you want to become as a young boy?
Well, I was always playing with airplanes so I guess I wanted to become a pilot! But it turned out completely different. I sell commercial space for RTV 10.

Do you have a wishes or dreams for the future?
To meet a nice guy and be very happy together.

Who was lying next to you when you woke up this morning?
Nobody I’m afraid!

Who would you like to lie next to you when you wake up?
Err, well, my best friend actually. I’ve had the hots for him for a while so, there you go…

A totally different one: you’d rather die than wake up next to…?
Balkenende! Yuk, he’s nasty!

Are you an optimist or misery guts?
Always an optimist.

What is your ideal man?
Well, you have a minute? He has to be sweet and alert, full of passion and a soul mate in every sense of the word. If he answers to those things I don’t care about his looks so much.

Monogamy of Polygamy?
Hmm, that’s a difficult one… I can’t expect one person to fulfill all my needs…. so polygamy!

Have you ever had an STD?
No fortunately!

Who do you think deserves a good kick in the butt?
My ex-best-girlfriend who thought she needed to break off all contact with me after 20 years because I once couldn’t make it to her birthday because I had to work. I really don’t get it so I nominate her to get a kick in the p*ssy!

Who should be decorated immediately?
Me! I know that sounds arrogant but I think I deserve to be honored for the fact that I’ve always been there unconditionally for my real friends.

What would you really like to do or have done in your life?
Experience unconditional love!

What would you never do (again)?
Pretend I’m different than who I am. I never want to have that hassle again.

What can we wake you up for?
My best friend!

Spiritual or atheist?
I’d say spiritual because I reflect on myself and my actions etc.

What’s the most extreme drug you ever used?
Err, is cocaine extreme enough you think?

What was the most moving or most beautiful moment in your life?
That was nine years ago when my father put me on the train. He put his hand on my leg and told me he loved me (something he’d never done before) and he also said I had to take good care of my mother and myself. Less than a day later he died of heart failure. I think he felt he hadn’t long to go but he never told us he had a weak health.

What moment made you want the ground to open up and swallow you?
The moment a very dear friend who was in love with me caught me with my pants down with someone else (ouch!) Yes I hurt that person badly.

What is your fetish?
Do I really have to answer that one? Well, if you really want to know: I really like socks, feet and all those typically masculine scents. Happy now?

If I were prime minister I would…
Immediately tackle the gay marriage and civil servant issue. What a load of crap!

The most beautiful spot in Amsterdam is…
The monument on Dam Square! It’s a fantastic dynamic melting pot where the entire world comes together.
Ever made love to a woman?
Ever? Man, I was married for 14 years so yes, more than once…
