The Mr. Gay Europe Delegates 2006
It’s a real honour to present Belgium for the first time on the ‘Mister Gay Europe’ election. I would like to place our little country on the map as one of the friendliest gay countries. I also hope I will meet interesting persons and that it will a good cooperation. It feels good to know that a lot of people believe in me and without the support of all my friends I wouldn’t be here today. Thanks guys. I promise to give the best of me and going for a nice score for Belgium. That’s my goal.

I´m really glad that I was chosen to represent my country this year in MGE and I will try to do my best. I´ll be happy to meet new people and see how they feel about the competition and how it is to be gay in their native countries and communicate with them and learn new things. I think it will be a very exciting event which will connect many people.
Coming from a small country, I have learned the importance of getting to know other cultures and languages. However, I don’t feel that my native country plays a very big role in this competition. I feel more European than Danish and I’m sure that I could be happy living in any European country.
“France : Country of interbreeding, contrasts, freedom, exchange, solidarity, elegance and the french way of life ; it’s for that i’m very proud to represent France as being Mister France Gay MOW. I am near to people and where the exchange is the key of any success. ”
I´m very proud to be able to represent my island because I think it is the best site to live in the whole world. I would love to know more about other countries, persons and events, which is why I think Mr Gay Europe is a very important contest for me to obtain all that. I will try to give the better of me!
In Hungary the general opinion is that gays are only feminine boys. I would like to prove otherwise. I think now that I won Mr Gay Hungary 2006 that nothing will really change in my life. I am the same person, the boy next door.
I grew up in Dublin, and loved sports especially horse-riding and swimming. I was a boy scout for a while and I was part of the summer project in Newcastle Riding School training kids to ride horses. When I left school I worked in a call centre but then I moved to Spain where my family opened a bar in Alicante. I returned to Dublin last year and I was only back when I competed for Mr Gay Dublin which I won and now I am Mr Gay Ireland. My highlights were posing for the first ever Irish gay calendar with 11 other finalists and the money raised went to HIV/Aids and to the earthquake victims in Pakistan.
I am very happy to be able to participate in this competition and I will put everything into it, in order to do my best!
I hope I can give people around Europe a great picture of Lapland which I represent and also Pitea in Sweden where I live. Maybe this will give them a reason to visit the beautiful region I live in. But the biggest reason why I want to represent Lapland in Amsterdam is because I know I am going to have a great time down there!
I feel really flattered to be selected as the very first Mr. Gay Macedonia. It would be my utmost pleasure to participate at Mr. Gay Europe 2006 competition and defend the colours of my country. I also wish to express my deepest gratitude to the organizing committee for enabling me to take part at this important event promoting th gay sub culture and diversity at a global level. ! wish everyone success!

I wish to be a positive role model for young Dutch gays by being, and staying, myself. I have never entered any contests, so for me this is already such an experience!
I am an easy going guy. Almost always smiling. I love my job as a freelance actor, although it doesn´t pay much. It is more of a lifestyle than a job, really. I love going to concerts and I wish I had the finances to go to cultural events all the time! I am a big dreamer and my favorite past time is to lie in bed with people I care for and cuddle. I have a huge bed called “The Optimist” and I own a huge selection of broken instruments. I am proud to be representing Norway in Mr Gay Europe and I told everyone that if I won Mr Gay Norway I would walk down Main Street in my home town and make my own Gay Pride March, which I did!
My country takes part in Mr. Gay Europe for the first time this year. That’s why I am a little worried, but hopefully the jury will be a bit indulgent with me.
I am proud to be Welsh. We have a saying in Wales: “You can take the boy out of Wales, but you can’t take Wales out of the boy!”
