The gay pageant held last night in Johannesburg, South Africa. And for the first time since its inception, two black Africans participated in the pageant. Wendelinus Hamutenya, a 23-year-old nurse and midwife from Namibia (pictured on the left) and an Ethiopian graduate student named Robel Hailu, (pictured on the right) whose family disowned him after they found out he was planning to participate in the gay pageant.
Gay men from 22 countries took part in this year's Mr. Gay World 2012 and Andreas Derleth of New Zealand (pictured on top) was crowned the winner.
