PHOTOS: Official 2016 Mr. Gay Germany Candidates Announced

By Stephen Fuchs on

The 34 candidates for the Mr. Gay Germany contest have officially been announced and voting is underway to determine the top 10 finalists who will compete for the title and go onto the Mr. Gay World competition in Malta.

Last year’s Mr. Gay Germany, Klaus Burkart, went on to take the title as Mr. Gay World and used the title to push forward with his ‘OneDay’ campaign, which seeks to put an end to ‘coming out’. “We want to get it to a point where ‘coming out’ is not necessary any more.,” Burkart said upon winning the title in May.

So does Germany have what it takes to defend their title? Voting is done on Facebook and runs through September 12. Videos of each candidate are also available to view on YouTube if the pictures aren’t enough to get you going.
