MR GAY CANADA Delegate Application The Mr Gay Canada competition’s purpose is to provide an opportunity by creating a positive image for young gay men to make a ‘difference’ and be accepted within their own communities. Through education and public performances, MGC’s goal is to help create positive, authentic and empowered role models that will be a champion for Gay Human Rights within his own community as well as, on a global stage. Through these public performances, outreach and education, MGC will raise awareness of issues pertinent to young gay men, such as safe sex awareness, bullying and self-acceptance. The MGC competition will take place over an intense three days and includes various challenges including a photo challenge, sports challenge, fashion show/run way challenge, swim suit challenge, public speaking and a local outreach challenge where MGC is able to work with a local charity to give back to the community in hosting the competition. A maximum of 12 delegates will be selected for this year’s competition. The aim is to have a delegate representing as many provinces and territories as possible. Delegates can represent their place of birth (must provide birth certificate) or place of residence (must provide valid ID). Delegates will be responsible for their own transportation to and from Whistler for the competition. Delegates must be in Whistler by 3pm on February 9/2011. All housing (shared accommodations) will be provided and there will be some meals included. Delegates will be responsible for other meals and any other personal expenses. The competition will take place from Thursday February 9th to Saturday February 11th, which coincides with the annual WinterPRIDE festival. Delegates will have a complimentary pass to festival events, though most events will host elements of the competition. Delegates will be provided with a detailed schedule of events and requirements before arriving in Whistler. Delegates may need to provide some of their own “outfits” for some public appearances. The final official event will be at the Après Ski on Saturday February 11th, where the winner of Mr Gay Canada will be announced. Delegates will be free to celebrate at the final party, Snowball.
