Sydney man David Francis wants to become the first Australian to win the Mr Gay World competition.

29-year-old property developer David Francis runs a YouTube channel and has over 40,000 Instagram followers. He said he entered the competition to fight for LGBTIQA+ equality in Australia and around the world.

David Francis wants to be that voice

“The Mr Gay World competition is an internationally recognised platform. It encourages all its representatives to have their own voice in the LGBTIQA+ community and fight for what they believe in on issues such as acceptance, equality and respect. I want to be that voice.

“Like most LGBTIQA+ youth, growing up wasn’t easy for me. Being bullied about my sexuality when it wasn’t even something I had thought about let alone even understood at the time.

“As a consequence, my self-confidence took a battering. I found it hard to even believe in myself. But somehow, I was one of the lucky ones who were able to weather the storm.”

David Francis also gives his time as an ambassador for StartOut Australia, a mental health non-profit that’s developing an online mentoring program to provide access to role models for queer youth.

“I feel I have a responsibility to set an example and share my experiences so that young LGBTIQA+ people know that others have been through similar situations and made it through adversity.”
