Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival hosts Mr. Gay World 2018 contest and other international artists
Johannesburg (March 2018). – The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival is hosting the Mr Gay World Competition for the second time, and this is South Africa’s third time hosting during the contest in its ten year history.
Tickets are on sale now and you can book your seat for either the President’s Ball on Friday 25 May or the Grand Finale on 26 May. The venue, Villa Castollini, has stunning views over the Knysna lagoon and is the perfect setting for this event.
International singing sensation and winner of The Voice Israel, LINA, will be back in South Africa for the second time. Those who saw her perform at the Mr. Gay World Southern Africa Final will agree that dynamite does indeed come in small packages. In 2013, LINA won The Voice Israel, an incredible achievement, musically and culturally, considering the fact she is the first Palestinian to ever win a major TV show chosen by the Israeli public. LINA performed at the Tel Aviv Pride Parade to some 200,000 people and in so doing, she became the first Arab female singer to publicly support gay pride and the LGBT community.
She will be supported by Eden Michelle, who trained as a classical pianist from the age of six and released her first album at age sixteen. Living in London, Eden has been producing, writing and composing for numerous artists. Her debut EDM single is “Lost for Love”, featuring Dan Shaw. Both these artists music is played regularly on GaySA Radio, our media partner for the event. You can listen to a weekly broadcast with the latest Mr Gay World news with podcasts available.
