Stuart Hatton, a 28-year-old model and dance teacher from South Shields, England has been named Mr. Gay World after competing in the exclusively gay pageant that culminated in Rome Sunday night.
Once again, Europe wins. Step up your game, America!
For the next calendar year, Mr. Stuart Hatton has the pleasure of maintaining an image as a positive LGBT role model with a global stage to provide the official collective popular opinion of beautiful gay men everywhere. We’re told rounds at the competition varied from “swimsuit modeling” to “LGBT knowledge,” so we assume he’ll provide equal parts of these things as well.
As the UK’s first winner since the pageant’s inception in 2009, Hatton beat out Cyprus’ Kiriakos Spanos in second place, and Ireland’s Robert Lowlor in third.
As expected, Stuart Hatton added that he’s excited to be working for #worldpeace:
“I am now able to use my voice to help those in countries around the world who have no voice or equality rights such as people in Malaysia and Iran. We are all human and all gay people around the world deserve the same human rights as each other. This is just the beginning.”
