JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA. Mr Gay Hong Kong 2011 Jimmy Wong sustained Hong Kong’s respectable showing at Mr Gay World, placing 7th overall amongst 22 participationg countries and territories.

Hong Kong was also part of the team (together with Netherlands, Mexico, Ethiopia and Bulgaria) that won the Team Sports Challenge. New Zealand won the individual challenge.

Mr Gay Hong 2009 Rick Twombley collected a slew of special awards and was proclaimed 2nd Runner Up in Mr Gay World 2010 in Oslo, Norway. Mr Gay Hong Kong 2010 Heihei Yau received a special citation at Mr Gay World 2010 in Manila, the Philippines, from one of the organizatons’ corporate sponsors.

The 2012 competition culminated in a glittering Grand Finale on 8 April, Sunday, at the The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City.

In the Top 10 Question and Answer, Jimmy was asked:

“If you could invite anybody to join next year’s panel of judges at Mr Gay World, who would it be, and why?”

He answered:

“I would invite UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. During a round table discussion in New York, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon affirmed that homophobic bullying of young people constitutes a “grave violation of human rights,” and urged States to take the necessary measures to protect their citizens from violence and discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. The Honourable U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is an ally of the LGBT community.”
