When I was a child I used to be overweight. At the age of 15 I lost 25 kilos of weight, took care of my nutrition and did sports to keep in shape. To be able to enter the Mr. Gay Europe competition would be a huge step for me, a great reward for the effort and discipline that I´ve had all these years. To be honest it would be a dream come true. I´ve lived 12 years in India and 12 years in Germany. Currently I´m doing my studies in the United Kingdom. I´ve been able to learn and experience a lot in all these different cultures. And I know how important it is for people to have role models to hold on to, to feel comfortable with their sexuality and to be proud of themselves for what they are. It is a great honour for me to represent the gay community.
Im proud to represent my country and welcome all of Europe in my hometown Budapest for Mr. Gay Europe 2007.My life is my hobby, it takes up lots of my time, but I love every second of it.

I would like to promote the gay rights in the world. (such as marriage, adoption and so on). Most of all I would like to eradicate prejudice by showing the world that gay people are no different, and we have the same rights as straight people have.
I live in an European country which still has many problems with gay lifestile. I want to try to help change the mostly wrong perception italian people have of us.
I want to get focus on gay people also in the nothermost parts of Europe.
I am happy to meet with Mr. Gay Europe delegates. I find them all very OUT! I need such an experience. It makes me more self confident , to be more and more OUT. Macedonia is still a very concervative country. I dream of the day to come soon when gay people in Macedonia have the same freedom and rights like I see in the western countries of Europe.

I am passionate about supporting gay issues and causes, from equal rights to sexual health. It is important to celebrate how far we have come in improving gay rights and gay visibilty and at the same time recognise how far we still have to go. This contest is a great oppurtunity to celebrate and to challenge.
