A few words about: What is Mr. Gay World...?
"It's an annual contest for Gay Men, seeking to establish ambassadors for LGBT and human rights.
It's not a beauty contest and there is no age limit.
This competition is one of the most publicised gay contests in the world and unashamedly uses the attention it garners to focus attentionon the plight of LGBT people worldwide..."
