Bernard Lee’s entry into the Mr Gay New Zealand competition was sealed last year when he won the Mr Gay Wellington competition but it’s been the work he has done with some diverse charity groups that make his admission as a finalist complete.
Born on the island of Borneo in South East Asia, Lee headed to Wellington in the Winter of 2009 to further his architectural studies. But it became the place he could call home and be himself finally.
Bernie is the current Mr Gay New Zealand and has since travelled to Mr Gay World 2016 in Malta as our representative and was the perfect ambassador for our country. Below is a short blog of his time in Malta.
