Boksburg’s Louw is Mr Gay World 2021

Breytenbach will reign consecutively with the Mr Gay World 2020.

TV Presenter Louw Breytenbach, of Boksburg, representing South Africa, walked away with the Mr Gay World  2021 title on October 30.

The 31-year-old founder of LALT House of Growth was announced the winner after a stunning virtual finale which was the culmination of two weeks of challenges for ten delegates from across the globe.

Moved online due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, the Mr Gay World™ 2020 and 2021 competitions were streamed via the Mr Gay World  YouTube channel and included pre-recorded pieces from all delegates as well as visuals from areas across the host country South Africa.

After the challenges were completed the top five ranked delegates were then asked a further question to allow the top three to be announced.

Breytenbach was presented as the winner with Joel Rey Carcasona from the Philippines announced as 1st runner-up and Joshuan Aponte from Puerto Rico announced as 2nd runner-up.

Breytenbach will reign consecutively with the Mr Gay World 2020 winner, making it the first time in history that two Mr Gay World delegates will reign at the same time.

Louw Breytenbach is a champion for mental health.
