Mr Gay UK 2006, Grand Final

gaydar.co.uk/..hardstandingI got an e-mail from a reader this afternoon about Mr Gay UK 2006. This year's Grand Final is in Blackpool tomorrow (Friday 29th September), and the reader has a mate who's one of the finalists. He told me that if his mate wins the contest, he hopes to use the platform to mount a fund-raising effort for HIV charities, which sounds very worthy :-). Apparently this guy is a climbing instructor, so it sounds like the plan would be some kind of sponsored climbing event. But he needs to win obviously, so why not give this guy your support? This involves sending a simple txt msg, see his gaydar profile for details. I figured that if a guy like this has got a friend who's keen enough to bother to e-mail people like me who he doesn't even know, on the slim chance that I'd support him, then he probably does deserve some support. So good luck mate, you've got my vote!

Update 1-Oct-2006: I e-mailed the reader who asked me to support his mate and it turns out that this guy didn't win. In the reader's own words:
I spoke to him briefly today, and he didn't get it. Apparently a pumped up policeman with too much fake tan won. Not that he's bitter! (he is wry though.)
Never mind, and thanks to any other readers who voted for him :-).

that's too bad on the gent losing. maybe next year. the whole overly-pumped tanorexic thing seems to be on its way out anyhow.

i've noticed more and more guys are opting for the more naturally lean look like he has...
