You are hereby cordially invited to attend the Mr Gay World events that will be held in Knysna this May to celebrate the crowning of a global gay ambassador.

The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival is hosting the Mr Gay World Competition for the second time, and this is the third time that it will be hosted in Africa during Mr Gay World’s ten-year history. Tickets are on sale now and you can book your seat for either the President’s Ball on Friday, 25 May or the Grand Finale on Saturday, 26 May. The venue, Villa Castollini, has stunning views over the Knysna lagoon and is the perfect setting for this event.

International singing sensation and winner of the Voice Israel, LINA, will be back in South Africa for the second time. Those who saw her perform at the Mr Gay World Southern Africa Final will agree that dynamite does indeed come in small packages. In 2013, LINA won The Voice Israel, an incredible achievement, musically and culturally, considering the fact she is the first Palestinian to ever win a major TV show chosen by the Israeli public. LINA performed at the Tel Aviv Pride Parade to some 200,000 people and in so doing, she became the first Arab female singer to publicly support gay pride and the LGBT community.

She will be supported by Eden Michelle, who trained as a classical pianist from the age of six and released her first album at age sixteen. Living in London, Eden has been producing, writing and composing for numerous artists. Her debut EDM single is “Lost for Love”, featuring Dan Shaw.

The music of both artists is played regularly on GaySA Radio, media partner for the event. You can listen to a weekly broadcast with the latest Mr Gay World news and podcasts are available. Check out www.gaysaradio.co.za

Tickets are now available for these amazing two evenings which will be filled with international talent and, of course, the hunky finalists of Mr Gay World from over twenty countries.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.webtickets.co.za.
