Nick is 21 years old and lives in Eeklo (East-Flanders). He is a male nurse (family care). He did his coming out in 2011 and his concept for Mister Gay Belgium is about “LGBT people wanting children”.
“I found out about this election in 2015 when Skelte won. It was everywhere. From that moment on I knew that i wanted to participate. I waiting a few years until I felt comfortable enough to show my true self to the LGBTQIA+ community. The fact that Mister Gay Belgium exists means the world to me, just like it does to many other gay men. It gives us power, a voice, it gives us a platform where we can show who we are and what we can achieve”.
“My campaign is about people from the LGBTQIA + community who want to have a child. In Belgium, the options are limited and the procedures are often long-winded. I want to focus most on the statutes that parents get during an adoption process. I want to elaborate my campaign by hearing personal stories, obtaining accurate figures and demonstrating that a change has to be made”.
“I had my first boyfriend when I was 15 and told this to a friend. Her sister had been a couple with my brother for several years. My friend told her sister, her sister told my brother, my brother told my other brother and my other brother told my sister. My sister then said it to my mother. I didn’t have to do anything. The day after that I posted it on Facebook and the rest is history”.
“Do it when you are ready and when you feel safe. Coming out of the closet is an intense and life-changing experience. Do not feel obliged to do it. When you decide to leave the closet, we will be here, to support you, to lift you up. You are part of an loving and accepting community”.
“Black Panther. Not for what he can do or for what he does, but for what message this character and this movie will bring to so many people from the black community. Finally, a blockbuster where it is not just the typical white cast. Recognition. That is why he is my favorite superhero”.
“Incomprehensible. The fact that I grew up in the western world, in a country where homosexuals can marry since 2003, first spun a haze in front of my eyes. I saw this as self-evident and thought that this was the same everywhere. It was not until I got older and I saw how much inequality, how much hatred, discrimination and physical violence were exerted on homosexual men and women. Only then did I see how wrong this is. It is their culture, I understand that, I will not go into that but the world has so many highly educated leaders who can make a significant difference in this issue. It’s 2018, time to wake up”.
Favorite country: “The Netherlands. I’m in love with Amsterdam.”
Naughty or nice: “A little bit of both”.
Hottest guy: “Colton Haynes, if you don’t know him you have to look him up.”
Marriage or Children: “I can’t choose, I want both. I need both. ”.
Pink In Our Lives: “Consistent. A blog that keeps updated, that is relevant and entertaining.”
Favorite music: “Give me some chill beats with a low bass line and I’m good.”
Biggest Fear: “Not finding happiness.”
Boxers or briefs: “Boxers”
First Love: “Julie. My first and only girlfriend. We dated for a year and a half. She then found out she liked girls, and I found out I like guys, and that’s that.”
Bad ASSet: “Kinda chaotic.”.
Beautiful ASSet: “I always have a good mood.”
Bodypart you are proud of: “My ass. Is that wrong to say?”
