After three years of Mr Gay Pride Australia which has seen three top ten finishes at Mr Gay World including a win and the development of many emerging LGBT leaders, the competition is set to continue its growth with the announcement that global review platform Trustpilot has signed on as major sponsor.
Mr Gay Pride Australia is a competition designed to find, build, and develop future leaders within the LGBTI community in Australia. Winners of each year’s event become the official representative for Australia at the annual Mr Gay World competition which this year held it’s 11th final week in Cape Town South Africa.
In 2017 David Francis carried the baton to Spain and placed seventh, in 2018 Jordan Bruno won both the Australian and World titles, becoming the first to do so and this year Rad Mitic also placed seventh in a highly competitive final.
As major sponsor of Mr Gay Pride Australia, Trustpilot CMO Gabriele Famous believes there are terrific synergies between Trustpilot and Mr. Gay Pride Australia when it comes to building strong leaders in our community.
“Our culture and brand are built around the values of being open to all, collaborative and positively human. This partnership is a fabulous way to bring those values to life in a tangible, meaningful way,” said Gabriele Famous, CMO Trustpilot.
“We are proud to be supporting Mr Gay Pride Australia and the work being done through its contestants to improve people’s lives.”
Current Mr Gay Pride Australia Rad Mitic, who is also employed by Trustpilot, said it is exciting to have such a global company involved with an Australian competition looking to develop leaders of the future and tackle issues within the LGBTIQ community.
“I’m so grateful and lucky to work for a company [Trustpilot] who values all their employees for who they are,” said Mitic.
“Together, I know we will be able to work closely to shine a spotlight on the issues facing our broader community but also, help those entering the competition, a chance to grow as leaders with the Trustpilot backing.
“I had the best experience of my life representing Australia at Mr Gay World in Cape Town and after spending the week with so many amazing delegates from all parts of the globe I look forward to continuing our work together.”
Mr Gay Pride Australia is currently on the lookout for its next competition city and venue to find the next set of leaders for 2020.
