2017 has begun already which also makes it time again for the search of a new Mister Gay Belgium. The twelve contestants for 2017 are known for the public and introduced at the Press Event in February. They are eager to take over the reign and title of Mister Gay Belgium 2016 Raf Van Puymbroeck. They have their own message to bring out to the world and will show why they should be named as Mister Gay Belgium 2017 at the 27th of May in Antwerp. Time again like every year for PINK IN OUR LIVES to put all candidates separately in the spotlight and give a taste of who they are. We have met them all and they are a fine and friendly group of guys and the sixth candidate of this series of interviews will be Sasha de Swert.
“I participate in the Mister Gay Belgium election 2017, because I want to be supportive and a confidant to all the people who can connect with my theme, but also outside it. And also because this is an unique experience which can teach me a lot and will stick with me for many years ”.
“Gay Pride is for me a time where everybody can be who he or she is. It is a relief that I can walk hand in hand with my boyfriend during the Gay Pride, without be watched and judged. That is also the reason that the Pride is still necessary. As long as there is news about gaybashing, children getting thrown out of there family homes because of their sexual preference, people looking at us with disgust of who we are, the Pride is DEFINITELY important and needed.”
“My ideal man? He looks like my boyfriend, the handsomest guy for me.”
“SPEAK! Talk with someone in confidence, when you have difficulties being yourself. There is nothing wrong with being different. And you are not alone. But most importantly, take your time. If you don’t feel up to it, don’t force it. When you feel strong enough, and you find a good time to come out, then you can take that step.”
