Thanks already to photographers Marc Drofmans, Tom Vaes, Marc Cuvelier, Kevin Wuyts, Karin Vermeiren, Emmanuel Deprijckere and René Emmerink for the great pictures of all the candidates and www.welovemisses.be for the videos in this article.
Josip is 24 years old and living in Oosterzele (East-Flanders). He is a metal worker at Volvo Trucks. He came out of the closet in 2012 and he wants to make his project about “discrimination and prejudice” known to the public.
“I learned about the election by social media and the many flyers. Mister Belgium means for me an organization that will put our LGBT community in the picture with an gay ambassador. Here isn’t only the looks important, but mostly the message and theme of the candidate. Because of certain aspects socially within and outside the LGBT community are still not accepted, we still definitely need an ambassador like this”.
“My campaign stands for taking away the discrimination based on looks, especially about the ideal image of beauty and the prejudices against looking different than that ideal image. Everybody need to be themselves and be able to express themselves freely.
I would like to do this with a blog where everybody can tell their stories and letting other people take courage out of it and letting them know they are not alone or the only one with this feeling.
Next to it I would encourage the media to show the world a more realistic image of our LGBT community and not only the same pictures and videos where everybody has the perfect size of measurements”.
“To my sister, who is the closest to my heart. At the first following family gathering always is the typical annual question for the bachelors, “And when will a girlfriend come along?” Where my sister immediately answered for me: “It probably will be more a boyfriend”. #honesty #redcheeks
“Don’t hesitate, just do it! real friends will never let you fall or desert you. In the meantime it is more accepted in society these days to not postpone it any longer”.
“My parents. They have always supported me, even at the difficult moments. Besides the bullying, staring and the shamings, they were always the ones I could fall back on. This made me the person, who I am today. Superman can’t even reach that far to accomplish that for me”.
“I can’t understand this, everybody has to be themselves no matter what culture, country, religion, etc. Love is something that just happens. It can’t be or may not be controlled or stopped. Still I am optimistic for the future, more and more countries around the world accept homosexuality”.
Favorite country: “Spain, because I lost my heart to Barcelona. Especially the feeling, authenticity and good vibes appeal to me”.
Naughty or nice: “Naughty, because of my young and playful personality”.
Hottest guy: “Swimmer Pieter Timmers: Sportive handsome dude. He had lots of successes, but still maintains to be a down-to-earth guy. This makes him even more beautiful”.
Marriage or Children: “Marriage; a confirmation of love and gives your relationship an extra higher dimension”.
Pink In Our Lives: “Interesting website to see what lives amongst the LGBT community. A tip that gives it something more extra is a more realistic image of men. (It doesn’t always have to be perfect”)
Biggest Fear: “My biggest fear at this moment is getting dementia, because of recent events. The fear of having no idea of the reality concerns me a lot”.
Boxers or briefs: “Boxers, then there is enough place!”
First Love: “First love calls people for a reason “first” love…..”
Bad ASSet: “Too organized. And a perfectionist”.
Beautiful ASSet: “Compassionate, I try to do almost everything for others, within my possibilities”.
Bodypart you are proud of: “My hands”.
Goal in your life: “To have lived to the fullest and trying to have enjoyed every moment”.
Favorite Dragqueen: ‘Miss Michelle from Les Folles De Gand. She entertains the people in a funny and sympathetic way with a bit of craziness’.
Breakfast on bed or dinner for 2: “Dinner for 2. I skip mostly breakfast and I really enjoy having dinner more intense without spilling crumbs on my bed”.
Mister Gay Belgium organization: “Promotor for the LGBT community and isn’t afraid to deviate from the ideal beauty image”.
