A new year, a new 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 sixth candidate is Nico Maes.
“My coming out was easier than expected, because the persons around me supported me instantly. This was very positive for me and I did not expect this.”
“I think my theme is very important, because at the country side there is a shortage of gay clubs and bars. There is no place here, where LGBTI’s can be themselves without prejudice and trying to make contact inside the LGBTI community.”
“My best quality is that I am very loyal to myself. I am who I am and that stays that way”.
“My worst quality is I am very vain. The mirror is mostly my best friend”.
“They always say “everybody has got a secret”. Well, my little secret is that I had a relationship with a girl. We are still very close, so close that I am the godfather of her current child!!!”.
“I hope to florish further in my career and that my partner and I have made beautiful and nice travel trips. Also that we still have the same amazing circle of friends“.
