This weekend, February 9-11, 2012, in Whistler, BC, five contestants, including LGBT blogger, Brian Webb, will compete for the title of Mr. Gay Canada 2012 during GayWhistler’s WinterPRIDE celebrations.
Creating a positive image for young gay men to make a difference and be accepted within their own communities is the goal of the Mr. Gay Canada competition. Through positive, authentic and empowered role models, Mr. Gay Canada is a champion for Gay Human Rights within the community and global stage.
Well known Canadian blogger, Brian Webb, (pictured below) has been writing about the LGBT community and has contributed to our very own GuySpy blog. Originally from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Brian’s blog, myWebbSite.ca, shares daily lifestyle features including healthy living, culture, and Pride issues. As a role model for youth who follow his mad social networking skills and blog including Twitter and Facebook Pages, Brian raises awareness through his adventures, stories and inspiring tales.
“It is a great honour to be named as a finalist for Mr. Gay Canada 2012,” Brian Webb stated. “Over the years I have fostered a positive image for young gay men and have been a champion for gay human rights. It’s important to me to continue to raise awareness of issues facing out community and youth, including safer sex, anti-bullying and self-esteem.”
The intensive three-day competition will include a series of challenges and categories including a swimsuit appearance, fashion show, sports challenge, panel interviews, presentation skills and public online voting.
The announcement of the winner of Mr. Gay Canada will take place as the Apres Ski event on Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Whistler, BC. The winner of the Mr. Gay Canada competition will go on to represent Canada at the Mr. Gay World competition, to be held April 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
