Marcus is Mr Gay Wgtn!

Mr Gay Wellington 2011 was crowned this evening and the title went to 32-year-old Marcus Fenson.

Marcus wowed the audience and the judges with his rollerskating and personality, despite coming down with a bad case of the flu.

Close behind in second place was previous Mr Gay Wellington winner Jade Neale, who blew the audience away with a stunning operatic performance and conservative suit dress.

There were five entrants in total, including drag queen Gummy Sue who decided she should remind the audience that she really was a man by flashing her bits.

Host Steve Gray (ex-Good Morning) was camp and his usual hilarious self, despite shocking the audience by announcing the wrong top two, including someone who was not in fact in the top rankings. “I’ve fucked that up!” he laughed while announcing there would now be a top three instead of two.

Mr Gay Wellington 2010 Michael Gray appeared via satellite from his new home of Melbourne, where he wished the entrants the best of luck and promised the winner he’d have a full-on year.

Marcus says he would like to use his title to make more take part in “queer events” and said he was definitely against the ‘Wellywood’ sign when quizzed on his position there.

Were you there tonight? Who did you vote for? Did the right guy win?

    Oh Marcus – how could he not win with such a sexy butt (and of course, such an awesome guy in general!)! MAJOR respect points from the judges panel for suggesting we get rid of the Wellywood sign. Love that guy.

    • Ummm…they DID come to the party – 1, they hosted the event and 2, they gave the winner a $1000 bar tab. So your comment is redundant

      • Its got nothing to do with who or where the event is hosted, its to do with whats on offer for those who enter the competition. Im sure its not about wearing a sash & tiara for 5 minutes.

          Agreed. Last year’s prizes were way better. In fact the last one was better overall. This just looked like it was done on the cheap but with a more expensive entry fee!

  5. Woah hater, stop being such a bitch. It’s because of judgemental little queens like you that people are too nervous to enter. Too much criticism.

    Next year get up on stage yourself and show everyone how a real talentless idiot looks. Atleast Nick Meehan participated.

    • Ha she would have beaten Nick Meehan without even showing up.

      BTW, who wrote the wanky life story comment defending Nick? This is a gay website not a girl scouts meeting. Grow thicker skin.

  7. Nick Meehan is one of the rudest people I’ve ever met in my entire life. He’s arrogant and snobby and maybe this will take him down a peg.

  8. but yeah, big congrats to Marcus. He’s the star of the show – the right guy won in the end 🙂

  9. It was a good night, I think all the contestants had fun, which was ultimately the goal. There’s no need to bash anyone, I’m pretty sure all the people talking smack here didn’t participate in the show. Is that because you didn’t have the balls, or because you knew assholes like yourselves would be ripping you apart the next day. Congrats to the winner Marcus and all the runners up for going out and having a good time!

    The girls were just really agro against each other and the supporters of different girls used to fight. It was in the paper lots because there was always drama. One time these girls ganged up on a girl who won because she looked too feminine and therefore mustn’t be a real lesbo.

    Honestly, the gays had nothing on those girls!

      Haha oh… from some of the dramas and arrogance I’ve seen from the other gay girls lately that could be really hilarious. Probably a good thing they stopped it though… Sigh.

  13. u people are douchbags!u sit there in the shadows insulting and mocking people who all they did was put themselves out there and have a bit of fun.yea nick probly wasnt going to win, but he still had a go. im a straight guy and the fact that nick is able to get up and show a crowd of people who he is takes balls!and i respect him for that.just wish u people who just sit there not letting urselfs be judged actually acknowledge the courage it takes to enter a competition that judges and ranks people on who they are. u should grow up and realise that everyone is different and just cause u are not a fan doesnt mean u have the right to insult a guy for having a go….. in the end he didnt win so wots the harm in the guy competing??? doesnt mean u have to insult the guy!!

    For a community that supposedly prides itself on being accepting of everyone and publicly and vehemently abhors discrimination, this slew of insults is completely reprehensible, not to mention injurious to both the gay community’s reputation and a good guy’s feelings.

    You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Whether you brand it as criticising his perfromance, as opposed to his person, inauspicious aspersions towards him at all are needless cruelty.

    As to whether this thread is bullying, the answer is a simple and resounding yes. It’s childish and you all clearly need to find something better to do, than dishonestly trying to defend your lack of scruples.

    Welcoming “attention” never warrants such a shameless attack on a person.

    Grow up and find a hobby that less resembles slander.

      • There are PLENTY of stories posted that are interesting and that you could comment on if you didn’t like the tone of this discussion. There’s an interesting article on the legality of releasing Darren Hughes’ accusers name. There’s some photos from the recent Queer the Night march in Wellington. There’s a story about Out Takes gay film fest closing soon. You could mention there which films you like and which films you might see.

        Oh wait, but you’re not. Seems you are just as drawn to this debate as those you’d like to call ‘ginormous’ [sic] bitches.

  19. For what it’s worth, Nick is a bit of a show-off. Sure, he can’t sing as well as Jade and isn’t as pretty, but he’s a nice guy. I accept that he probably opened himself up to this kind of criticism for entereing, but, really, I question the mental state of people who care enough to bitch about him on the internet. Why do you do it? Are you insecure, or just bitches? (possibly both).
