New Zealand Man Crowned ‘Mr. Gay World’ in Belgium: VIDEO


Christopher Olwage of New Zealand has been crowned Mr. Gay World 2013 in Antwerp, Belgium, Flanders News reports:

25 winners of Mister Gay contests from 5 different continents took part in the big contest to become Mister Gay World. The participants had the opportunity to convince the jury members in different areas: sports, modelling, leadership qualities and background knowledge of LGBT-related issues (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender).

The event took place in the Elckerlyc Theatre in Antwerp, the city that is hosting the World Outgames for lesbians and gays until 11 August. The aim is to highlight equal rights for LGBT's and to give them some positive attention. Christopher Olwage was praised by the jury as a strong all-round candidate with excellent dance skills.

Olwage entered New Zealand's Got Talent last year and his take on the "Black Swan" earned him plaudits.
