The Real World: Cancun’s most controversial, and openly queer, cast member, Ayiiia Elizarraras, was best known for her hook-ups with female roommates and drama with the boys on the show. AfterEllen.com catches up with our favorite castmate to chat about her girlfriend, sexual fluidity and how she identifies now.
AfterEllen.com: Now that the show is over, how do you feel you were portrayed by MTV? How do you feel they portrayed your sexuality?
AE: How did the roommates react to your sexual experimentation (besides the ones that you smooched)?
AE: I know that you were concerned about your family’s response to your exploration of your sexual identity on the show; how did that go over?
I know it’s hard for them as well so I’m trying to be as calm and understanding as possible. All I care about is being happy and that’s exactly what I am. I don’t want to change for anyone, I just want to be true to myself whether people like it or not.
AE: On the show, you spoke a lot about sexual fluidity and experimentation. How do you identify now?
AE: Your YouTube account has garnered a lot of attention from AfterEllen.com readers, and we’re dying to know: How did you meet your girlfriend, Krystal?
Ayiiia and Krystal
AE: Who was the best kisser in the Cancun house, and why?
Ayiiia: The best kisser of all of the roommates would have to be Bronne, which is very surprising. He’s awesome. I think he’s a great kisser because you wouldn’t expect it from him, kind of like the underdog type. (laughs)
