Mr Gay World™ announced that Mr Gay World™ 2020 will once again be hosted in South Africa, specifically in Nelson Mandela Bay and Knysna; along the country’s spectacular Garden Route.
The prestigious international contest is set to take place from 26 April to 3 May 2020 and will see a stellar line-up of men from around the globe competing for the Mr Gay World title. This will be the third time that the event will be hosted in Knysna and the fifth time in South Africa.
The Garden Route is a stunning stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa which is known for its verdant and ecologically diverse vegetation and numerous estuaries and lakes.
Mr Gay World 2020 event was originally scheduled to be hosted in Cape Town, just as it was in 2019, after Mr Eric Butter, owner, founder and President of Mr Gay World, was personally approached by the City to return for another three years.
However, following further unsuccessful discussions with the City of Cape Town it was decided to not continue with the event in the city but to rather move it to a more accommodating location.
Eric Butter, owner, founder and President of Mr Gay World said Mr Gay World 2020 will return to South Africa for the last time. “The delegates will be hosted in Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth), ending off in Knysna as part of the annual Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival. I would like to thank the South African organisers for assisting us again.”
The town of Knysna has expressed its full backing for the event. “We are delighted that Mr Gay World is returning to Knysna and look forward to welcome all the delegates in 2020,” says Executive Deputy Mayor, Cllr Aubrey Tsengwa.
