The third annual Mr. Gay Taiwan is happening this October 29! After three categories — formal wear, casual wear and swimwear — and a question round, the winner will be sent to the Mr. Gay World 2017 competition! We’re taking a look at the hosts and all the contestants. Mr. Gay Taiwan is proudly sponsored by the gay social app Hornet.
It’s always interesting to see the people behind the pageant — so let’s meet one of our seven Mr. Gay Taiwan finalists, Melvin Chen!
Unicorn Booty: Why do you want to be Mr. Gay Taiwan?
I want to show the best of myself. I am proud of being gay.
What challenges does the LGBTQ community face in Taiwan?
I think that gay guys can’t cooperate with others well; we like to compete with each other. And we don’t care enough about the news and issues. We focus too much on appearance, without caring about society.
What are your likes, dislikes and hobbies?
I like to exercise and play volleyball. Sometimes I spend time together with my friends, see movies or taste some fancy foods. My hobby is reading some English books, and playing with my friend’s dog. I love pets, they’re cute.
