15. South Africa – Karabo Morake

This is daily reminder to please vote for South Africa for Mr Gay World 2018????????. Remember, if we work together as LGBTQI+ activists/ambassadors we are much more likely to perform well when we work effectively as a team. This is because good teamwork creates synergy, where the combined effect of the team is greater than the sum of individual efforts. Lets stand together and make South Africa proud.

17. Taiwan – Po-Hung Chen

如果能夠贏得世界同志先生,對你來說的意義是什麼呢? 首先,這會是一個莫大的榮耀在LGBTQ的族群之間,會非常有意義性也重要的象徵。 對我來說,世界同志先生的意義,也是鼓勵大家勇敢驕傲做自己,其實每一個人都可以做到這樣的價值,進一步地帶給身邊的人這種鼓勵的力量。 What will winning Mr Gay World mean for you? First of all it will be a great honor to be crowned Mr Gay World because I do see the value of it within the LGBTQ communities around the world. And for me Mr gay World brings the value to believe that one can be proud of himself to influence other people , and I believe that anyone can do this. 攝影:Hoya Huang #mrgaytw #mrgaytaiwan #MGW2018 #ibelieve #lgbtqrights #equality #believeinyourself  #lgbtqsports #lgbtqpride #LGBTQvisibility #loveislove #lovewins #gay #love #picoftheday #instagood #instamood #likeforlike
