As promised Pink In Our Lives will present the twelve candidates for Mister Gay Flanders 2015 in random order. As you could see on the press conference @ Red Star Line Museum (See article: http://pinkinourlives.com/2015/02/14/press-conference-mister-gay-flanders-2015/ ) there is a lot of diversity between the contestants and we are definitely looking forward to see who win the title and taking over the reign for a whole year from current title holder Willem Joris on the 30th of May 2015.
Dylan De Vroe is the sixth candidate of this series and he is 21 years old and living in Oudenaarde. He works as a beautician and he came out of the closet since 2012.
Why did you enter this competition and what do you want to achieve, when you become Mister Gay Flanders 2015?
“The reason why I participate in Mister Gay Flanders 2015 is to help LGBT people with mental and/or physical disability. This in their personal development as well as for their environment. I want this theme, that it is often hidden, to be put back on the front page. This entire campaign is not about me, but about them!!! My goal is to be a second voice for those who are struggling. Later we can organize events or campaigns to let the people be aware of this issue. I know I see it all very large, but when I put my teeth in something, hold on! ;o)”
What makes you different from the other 11 candidates?
“I think all candidates have something or what in common, but what makes me different from the others is perhaps my great spontaneity and always good mood. When you have not a good day, I will try to brighten it up with a joke or so. You only live once. It is a cliché, but it is a fact. I try every day to make something of it, sometimes this goes better than other times.”
If you can compare yourself to an animal, what would you be and why?
“A horse. a horse never gives up or get exhausted, and so do I! I have a whole lot of energy that I use 6 times a week in the fitness club. I need my exercise, just like a horse.”
Which person do you think is HOT/CUTE and would you love to get under the sheets with?
“Sean Dhondt”. Why? “I don’t think this needs an explanation? Sean is a very handsome, yet something rougher man of looks. But I am sure that among all these tattoos, he is a sweet man. As we have already seen him be on television. And now yes, 50 shades of grey for sure?”
What would you like to change in our LGBT-community and how would you like to accomplish that?
“Answer one is of course my theme why I participate. But I would like to change the whole gay community. How? Step by step looking at what problems are still there around this topic. In Belgium, there is still too much taboo about it, and we must try to break through it. But I think we as LGBT’ers ourselves have to contribute to the society and not think that it is just from outside the gay community the support and tolerance should come. They adapt to us, WE adapt to them!”
