Entries for Mr. Gay World Southern Africa have closed and thirteen delegates
shortlisted to participate in this prestigious event.
Excitement is building for the Mr. Gay World Southern Africa event. The entries have closed and the organisers are proud to announce the thirteen delegates who will be put through their paces to find a winner worthy of representing Southern Africa at Mr. Gay World 2018.
Twelve of the delegates have been shortlisted from the entries received, with number thirteen being Mr. Gay Mardi Gras, who was crowned at the annual Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival earlier this year and who automatically qualified for entry. The delegates will make their way to Pretoria in September where they will spend a week at various of the Fortis Hotels in Pretoria and Rustenburg.
Here they will face a panel of judges who will have the difficult task of getting to know the guys and making crucial decisions that will have an impact on the final outcome. They will be interviewed, their participation in various activities judged as well as of course the success of their campaigns. Of course the public vote and final judging on the night will also be taken into account. The winner will walk away with prizes worth more than R 20,000 and represent Southern Africa at the Mr. Gay World event in 2018 at a time and venue yet to be announced.
Now that the delegates have been chosen, the next step will be for them to make a short video introducing themselves. Each delegate will be expected to run a campaign for the benefit of the community and the hash tag for their campaigns will be introduced in this video. This will be your chance to get to know them better before the public voting process commences.

The finals of Mr. Gay World Southern Africa will be held at the Atterbury Theatre in Pretoria on 23 September. Tickets will be on sale soon.
