Winning the Mr. Gay Hong Kong 2011 title will not only mean great prizes which include a cover and a 6 page spread in Dim Sum Magazine, a model’s portfolio by a noted photographer and year long professional hair styling services.
More importantly, this year’s Mr. Gay Hong Kong will be the official spokesperson against homophobic bullying in schools. This means that whoever will garner the top prize during the much awaited pageant will have a greater, more meaningful social responsibility ahead of him.
The Mr. Gay Hong Kong 2011 winner is expected to not only be a role model but to also help advocate equality and the upholding of rights for the members of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual) community. This may be quite a challenge for many but for pageant finalists Edmund LEE Ho Chun (21, fashion design student), Jimmy WONG Chun (26, dancer), Jonathan Bridge HUDSON (28, travel writer) and Ricky CHAU Ka Wing (23, sales agent), this will most probably just be an extension of what they have done, are doing and will still continue to do.
The Mr. Gay Hong Kong 2011 finale will be held on October 15, 2011 (Saturday), 7 PM at Bisous, 9/F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central, Hong Kong. Pageant judges include Marisa Zeman (daughter of Alan Zeman and designer at Nude Is Rude), Cantopop princess Juju Chan, superstar drag queen Coco Pop, HKMagazine publisher and Asia City Media Group country manager Greg Crandall, choreographer and Zoo bar owner Tony Wong, 2011 Mr. Gay World Francois Nel and film festival director Joe Lam.
