Last June, Marcus Fenson was crowned Mr Gay Wellington at Club Ivy, and now he’s in the running — with three others — to be Mr Gay New Zealand and compete against some of the world’s hottest in South Africa. So should he be the one to represent New Zealand? We investigate…
Naturally, like Fox News, we are fair and balanced and have investigated all four options to help you choose who you should vote for between Sylvain, Aaron, Andreas, and Marcus. The answer is Marcus!
Now we didn’t just come to this because we know him, or because of his looks. We carefully read through all profiles and thought his was the best. Why? Because he is the only contestant to actually touch on any of the real issues affecting the gay community: queer bullying, safe sex, but most of all self-acceptance. Sure a lot of us are all confident and happy with who we are and how we got there, but for so many of our queer bretheren, self acceptance is a long time coming.
Sure, Mr Gay New Zealand is just a bit of fun, and looks come into it, but we think it should be a little bit deeper than that, so that’s why we reckon Marcus should be the one representing us in South Africa. And if you need any further convincing, well he did win the best butt competition both at Vinegar Hill and Wellington. Plus he’s one of our good mates!
Vote for Marcus (or one of the others if you really want to…) at the poll on the Mr Gay New Zealand Facebook page – the public vote counts for 20 percent of the final, with the rest made up by a panel at the Big Gay Out on Sunday.
