German Klaus Burkart, a 21-year-old from Wangen, has been crowned Mr. Gay World 2015 at the competition in Cape Town, South Africa.
Burkart would like to become a role model for young gay people around the world. He said: "I would like to lead the world to a point where it is not essential to even have a coming out."
He now plans a campaign to visit schools and address issues like anti-gay bullying. "It is my dream to share my campaign with delegates and supporters all over the world. I would really like to work together with them to create similar campaigns adapted for their own countries", he added.
The countries finishing in the top five this year were Iceland, Belgium, Finland, Germany and Hong Kong.
Congrats to the winner!
