And the winner was Mr Gay UK. And he’s hot…
Stuart Hatton Jr, 29, was once just your regular super-hot gay dance instructor. Then, last year, he entered Mr Gay UK 2013, and entered into the roller-coaster world of topless photo shoots and public votes.
Following his success in Mr Gay UK, he narrowly missed out on the title of Mr Gay Europe in June (he came third). But every success story needs setbacks (where else would we get the drama?), and that didn’t stop Stuart from seizing victory in the Mr Gay World competition.
What does it take to make it to the top? More hours of commitment than most of us can muster, that’s for sure – but until we figure out an easier way, we took a look at some of Stuart’s best selfies to try and discover a day in the life of the gay community’s newest global role-model. Check out more pictures of him below.
Stuart Hatton, 29, is from South Shields in Tyneside. He was announced as Mr Gay World in Rome on Sunday August 31. You can follow him @hattondancer
