A new year, a new brand name!!! It is time again as we showed you in February for a new edition of Mister Gay Belgium (formerly known as Mister Gay Flanders). The twelve contestants for 2016 are known for the public and are looking forward to take over the reign of mister Gay Flanders 2015 Skelte Willems. They have their own message to bring out to the world and show why they should be named as Mister Gay Belgium 2016 at the 28th of May in Antwerp. Time for PINK IN OUR LIVES to put all candidates separately in the spotlight and give a taste of who they are. The first candidate is Sidney Demeulemeester.
WAS YOUR COMING OUT EASIER OR MORE DIFFICULT THAN EXPECTED AND WHY?
“More difficult than expected, because my stepfather was not so gay-minded during those years. Nowadays this has changed luckily” ;o)
WHY IS YOUR THEME/PROBLEM SO IMPORTANT?
“It is important, because there is still a big taboo about harassment and to be laughed at work And whether your gay, a lesbian, bisexual or transgender , you have to feel happy at work. Our job is a very important thing in our lives , because most of our hours, days and years we spend at our work. If you can’t be yourself there, where can we be? You will be very unhappy and that is why this is my theme!!!”
