The 19 out and proud delegates who will compete for the Mr Gay World 2018 crown in South Africa have been revealed.
The dashing, stylish and sexy contestants will take part in the international pageant in Knysna from 20 to 27 May, alongside the 18th annual Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival.
The men hail from as far afield as North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Juan Pinnick from South Africa is sadly the only delegate from Africa.
The contestants are a diverse bunch and include students, an economist, a financial advisor, a teacher, entrepreneurs, entertainers, a cook and even a navy serviceman, among others.
The winner of Mr Gay World 2018 will be announced at a spectacular ceremony on 26 May at the luxurious Villa Castollini in Knysna. Tickets for the grand finale and fund-raising ball and auction can be bought at www.webtickets.co.za.
