MR GAY WORLD: RACIST?

I have been following this so called biggest gay international pageant, Mr Gay World which started since 2009 and in it's 8 editions of pageants there seems to be a pattern when it comes to the winner. So far there has been all white winners with no Black, Asian or Latino winners. There seems to be something fishy that in it's many years of edition, I have wondered why they haven't manage to even make one coloured winner. Let's take a look at the history of Mr Gay World;

Image

2009: Ireland - Max Krzyzanowski
Image

2010: South Africa - Charl van de Berg
Image

2011: South Africa - Francoise Nel
Image

2012: New Zealand - Andreas Derlethfrom
Image

2013: New Zeland - Christopher Olwage
Image

2014: UK - Stuart Hatton Jr.
Image

2015: Germany - Klaus Burkart (Dethroned)
Image
Image

New 2015: Hong Kong - Mass Luciano (Latino Origin)
Image
Image


It makes me wonder whether the org will continue to crown white men as the image of gay ideal of beauty or will there will be someone new and fresh to change this format. As a young growing Asian man I feel quite sad that male pageants specially gay in this case seem to be dominated by the media's ideal of having white as what we should strive for.

What's worst is that in 2012 Mr Gay UK - London Contest, the original winner Stavros was negated by the org after winning the crown of Mr Gay London 2012. 1st runner up who is the ideal hunk was named as the winner and was published as the winner. Here is a sad documentary about the real truth about the dark side to gay pageants.


What do you think about the current trend of having white winners for Mr Gay World?

Do you think there will be any chance for an Asian/Black/Latino men to win this coveted title?

Or is it just selling dream to all the gays who don't fit the ideal role of perfection in the eyes of Gay community who have been facing many discrimination themselves in the past.

If you're ugly, you're ugly no matter what color.

It's only because they were the ones who performed well or maybe the best during their respective pageant year.

Do you seriously think that the guys who won in 2009, 2012 or even 2013 represents typical gay beauty standards? There were far better men to choose from beauty wise, which suggests the selection isn’t really based on the looks, not to mention the race.

Besides note that people of colour were in minority every year, so statistically speaking it was more likely for a Caucasian guy to be crown.

Talking about the patterns, it’s worth to note that all the winners , except the 2015, were from English speaking countries, while the last one was from Germany (the organizers are also German-speaking). Maybe they were looking for the speaking skills in particular?

It is you who make it about the race, not them.


Nope, here is the thing I have been following Mr Gay UK and over the years it has a very very bad reputation here in the UK. Due to the fact that the winner gets elected in a very sketchy way and Mr Gay London controversy with ex-Mr Gay UK became a cannibal and another ex winner went to prison for raping someone which didn't help it either.

Also, don't you think it's strange that its been 8 years since it started and they didn't manage to find any Asian/Black men who can speak english that is worthy to represent the gay community of the world. You do know places like Thailand and Philippines has such a huge about of gay people and also it would been nice to see a winner who can talk about the high rate of HIV in these countries also in Africa too. India is another great country to have a winner as now gay sex is illegal in India and it would been great to have a role model to many indian gays but seems like judges only want the stereotypical white man be the winner which is sad.

You talk about why I am using the race here it's because this is the only international recognised gay contest and as a gay asian men it's already hard enough to be in bottle of the gay community. So, having all white winners isn't really something to look up to as a young gay ASIAN man.

Exactly, I am all here for diversity and in a pageant it would be great to see winners from around the world. There are so many gay men who aren't white and don't look like the winners.
