Eric Butter, founder of the Mr. Gay World Organization (MGWO), envisions the organization to unite the gay community all over the world in a strong common cause. Joined by four other gay advocates (Dean Nelson, Noemi Alberto, Carlos Melia, and Brian Merriman), they work for the upliftment of the image of gay community all over the globe.
The first Mr. Gay World pageant was held in Whistler, Canada in 2009. It had Mr. Gay Ireland Max Krzyzanowski as the winner. The second pageant, Mr. Gay World 2010, was held in Oslo, Norway and had Charl Van Den Berg of South Africa as the winner.
For this year, Philippines is being represented by 24-year-old Marc Ernest Biala. Our past representatives include Wilbert Tolentino (who won Mr. Gay Popularity and Mr. Gay National Costume awards) in 2009 and David Noel Bosley in 2010.
