Role model: I absolutely adore Freddie Mercury, the way he delivers his songs, the sheer energy. I've personally have found one of his song for every moment in my life, so is my brother, even though he can’t sing like Freddie, he is my everything, he taught how to always look on the bright side of life.
Dream date: The zoo, I love animals especially the baby animals, I know it may sounds strange for a date but its a memorable experience...
Favorite moment in life: Has to be when I came out, I always thought that being gay was a kind of curse, but feeling the support of every single person I love, made that the best time in my life so far.

Statement: I've always been told that I always smile, no matter what happens, I consider myself a very friendly and an opimistic person, I'd love to take part of this competition to meet people from all over the world,and share this experience with them, i think this is a once in life opportunity for everyone in this contest, and i'd like to make the most of it.
If i get that lucky to win this competition, i'd use the name "Worldwide Mr Gay" to be heard, to do everything I can to help the gay community, as a member of it, who like everyone else want to be treated with the same rights as every other person in the world. As Rita Mae Brown said once: "No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love. The only queer people are those who don't love anybody"
