Although the Dutch Gay community achieved many legal rights like everybody the last years, the acceptance on the street has unfortunately taken a step backwards. No matter the background of heritage, young gays have the right to be out there. Like in the competition in Belgium of Mister Gay Flanders looks are nice, but the guys have to have their own story. It is great to be a feast for our eyes, but they have to be a role model too for the gay society and show that also in our community there are different kind of types and beliefs. Between these finalists are guys who are sero-positive, men who want to have their own child, to be accepted in sports or in their own non-western culture.

Here are the eleven candidates and let us know who is your favorite:

ASHLEY PETERNELLA, 23 years: “People have to adjusted to homosexuality, whether we like it or not”
