In an all-inclusive move, Mr Gay World has amended its policy to encompass the male-identifying spectrum within the LGBTQ+ community, allowing all men to enter the competition.
The leadership and awareness competition hasn’t been able to run since May 2019 due to Covid-19 but will conduct its 2020 and 2021 events virtually across the globe in September.
As a change, anyone identifying as male, using him and his pronouns and who collectively identifies as male will be welcome to enter Mr Gay World and any of the official country competitions across the globe.
In a statement, the organisation has said the title winner would be crowned as Mr Gay World and it is for this reason that all entrants should identify in this way.
“Mr Gay World is passionate about the empowerment and upliftment of all members of the LGBTQ+ community and regularly contributes to fundraising events and awareness activities for causes within this vast and diverse community, but its primary focus is that of the gay and male-identifying demographic of society as a community that has been globally recognised as a vulnerable minority with specific needs and requirements to promote self-confidence, solidarity and a sense of community,” said the statement.
