The stage is set for the Mr Gay World 2020 and 2021 pageant but this time it will be a virtual experience.
AFTER a two-year break due to the pandemic, the event has moved online and the competition will now be streamed via the Mr Gay World YouTube channel in four distinct shows that will give each of the delegates a platform to compete.
The 2020 pageant will be held on Saturday, 9 October, and on Saturday, 16 October.
And Mr Gay World 2021 will start on Saturday 23 October and the final will be on Saturday 30 October.
Country delegates and competition judges will be announced closer to the first event, but one judge who is scheduled to take part is the reigning 2019 Mr Gay World, Fran Alvarado, who took over the title from Janjep Carlos when the 2020 event was postponed.
President of Mr Gay World, Eric Butter, will also join the panel and says: “It marks the 12th and 13th presentation of MGW and we have had a truly unique time since the last competition.
“The decision to host an online competition was not taken lightly, as core to the yearly event is the get-together of all the delegates representing their countries in the pre-finale week that allows them to bring and share their worldwide experiences from their LGBTQI+ perspectives with each other.”
Public voting will begin a week before the first episode of each of the competitions.
