Mr. Gay Canada Event is This Weekend!

In an effort to prove that “gay is not a stereotype” a group of folks are putting together Mr. Gay Canada.

The Mr. Gay Canada Competition is especially concerned with gay men being viewed as the “other,” as outsiders to the rest of the world. Humans have a natural propensity to distrust “the other” and tend to project negative feelings away from themselves. The media has easily established the ‘gay stereotype’ – quick, think of what it is in your mind – and we know that limited image does not represent all of us.

A good friend of mine sent me some information about the event, which will take place over the weekend of September 10th to the 21st in both Vancouver and Whistler.

Opening festivities are going on tonight, Thursday, September 18th at Celebrities Nightclub (1022 Davie Street, Vancouver), 9pm doors, 10:30 presentation hosted by award-winning performer Berend McKenzie and DJ Zach Shore; $10 cover. It's a great opportunity to meet all delegates.

And then on Saturday, September 20th, is the Mr. Gay Canada Finale at Maxx Fish (Whistler Village), 8:30pm doors, 9pm presentation with special guest star judge Charlie David and DJ Foxy Moron; $10 cover.

Proceeds from these events go to the Mr. Gay Canada charity of choice, Friends for Life.

Be sure to check out all of the delegates at Mr. Gay Canada!
