Bernard Lee, also known as Mr. Gay New Zealand 2016 says he’s ready to take on the world at this year’s Mr Gay World competition held in Malta.
Lee started his journey to Malta departing from Wellington on the morning of Friday the April 15 with a brief stopover in Auckland where he met supporters, friends, and sponsors before landing in Malta on Sunday.
Speaking with eikon Lee said, “Honestly, the flight was long and excruciatingly painful. But the payoff was great because I studied architecture, I can totally relate to the historic significants Malta still has.”
Since arriving in Malta, Lee says he has had a few attempts at venturing out of his hotel where he is staying prior to the competition starting on the 15th. “I Got out from the airport and tried public transport. It didn’t go as planned. It went to Malta’s longest private hospital (Saint James hospital) and the general Mater Dei hospital. Now I know where to go
“I got out from the airport and tried public transport. It didn’t go as planned. It went to Malta’s longest private hospital (Saint James hospital) and the general Mater Dei hospital. Now I know where to go in case of emergencies.”
“I had Malta’s local popular favourite food – pizza! Then walked around and saw a poster of Mr Gay Malta himself, Iven.”
Lee says he is most looking forward to meeting the rest of the delegates, and feels that Mr Gay India will be his biggest competition for the title as the pair have already conversed on Facebook prior to the competition, and he feels he knows him well already.
