Motion text

That this House celebrates the organisers and competitors of the Mr Gay England, Mr Gay Europe and MX Drag competitions, with particular congratulations to David Allwood, Paul Dennison and Lavender Love, winners of Mr Gay England, Mr Gay Europe and MX Drag respectively; and further recognise the efforts of Stuart Hatton Jr., CEO of Mr Gay England, who is instrumental in organising this event each year; and notes that that Gayday 2022, held at Alnwick Gardens in Northumberland, helped raise funds for the Charlie and Carter foundation, a charity in South Shields providing financial support for parents of seriously ill children; and further notes funds raised for Pride Radio, a community station broadcasting to 150 countries around the world, and in some countries where it is illegal to be LGBTIQ+; and further recognises the role of the competitions’ participants and organisers in ensuring global LGBTIQ+ recognition, as it remains illegal to be LGBTIQ+ in over 70 countries worldwide, 13 of which carry the death penalty as punishment.
