Andreas Derleth, the 32-year old German hunk now living in New Zealand who works as a stationery warehouse manager, took the Mr. Gay World title home.. The Mr. Gay World competition (recently held in Johannesburg, South Africa) is now in its 4th year and have successfully received media coverage while ongoing in South Africa.
It’s ironic that black contestants for the pageant haven’t had the freedom they deserve when joining Mr. Gay World.
According to Outsports.com:
After Mr. Gay Ethiopia entered the Mr. Gay World contest, his father cut off all communications. Mr. Gay Zimbabwe withdrew, fearing the publicity was making life difficult for his mother.
But Mr. Gay Namibia’s family accompanied him to the airport for a warm send-off when he left for the competition, which culminated for him and 21 other men late Sunday in the finals at a Johannesburg casino.
