Watch: South African Man is Crowned Mr. Gay World in Manila


Francois Nel was crowned 'Mr. Gay World' in Manila, Phillippines yesterday. Michael Holtz, the U.S. entrant, was first runner-up. The competition describes itself as a "twenty first century beauty pageant" which seeks to establish ambassadors for gay rights. It will be held next year in Johannesburg.
