The Mr. Gay Pride Ball has arrived to its 10th anniversary this 2017. After the big night full of dances, parades and presentations, the crowned man was Ricardo Tacoronte, a young man from Tenerife that impressed everyone with his body and assets.
“I want to fight against the sissyphobia that’s present even in our own group” Ricardo Tacoronte
There were 16 finalists who showed cowboy suits, black shirts, underwear and tuxedos. According to the official site’s event “more than a million people watched the World Pride Madrid”
His name is Ricardo Tacoronte and he is only 28 years old. Ricardo woke up July 1st as the new Mister Gay Pride Spain 2017. He was born in Tenerife, he is 6’2 and he weighs 196 pounds.
Ricardo lived in Tenerife until he was 19, then he served on the Spain’s Army. No one would ever have imagined that this military man would someday become Mr. Gay 2017 in his country.
Ricardo is living in Cartagena (Colombia) however, nobody knows if winning the competition would make him move back to his country.
One of his passions are sports; among his favorite disciplines are swimming, going to the gym and athletics. Maybe sports are the secret of his physique.
According to the organizers, the attendance of the event had around 20.000 people. The same people also celebrated the approval of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Germany.
In the beginning, doing Mr. Gay was “very tough”, Juan Martin Boll and Nano Garcia, the organizers, stated. They have seen the event grow thanks to the will of their participants and sponsors.
On this opportunity, Ricardo Tocoronte will have the job to represent his home country, Spain, in the World Pride Gay in Argentina.
The Mr. Gay Pride Ball never seizes to amaze. This year it had the participation of Enrique Albert, a contestant with a motor impairment from the state of Alicante. Enrique has 25 years old and he insists on the necessity to “break strereotypes”.
On the same manner, the charismatic finalist urged to consider Mr. Gay as a pageant of “Values, strength and overcoming”.
