While New York’s size queens were on the hunt for the city’s largest member this weekend, a group of people assembled at a bar in Brooklyn to collectively turn their backs on society’s obsession with big peens. Their mission was simple: To find the smallest penis in Brooklyn, and award it $200.
The Smallest Penis In Brooklyn Pageant attracted a handful of poorly-endowed men, and with confirmation from a teeny tiny ruler, event organizers crowned 27-year-old Queens resident Nick Gilronan as the man with “the smallest penis in Brooklyn.”
In an exclusive interview with Gothamist, this model/actor says he’s comfortable in his own skin, and blames the media for making men with small peens seem inadequate:
Gothamist: Half of the guys wore masks, but stood out and from the get-go were a crowd favorite—what can you say about that?
Nick Gilronan:I’m very confident in my body, so no need to wear a mask. As for being a crowd favorite from the start, that totally caught me by surprise. When I contacted Aimee and Bobbie from Kings County Bar and confirmed my attendance, I immediately began to plan my set. I looked at the contest as a fun and entertaining event and intended to put on a good show for the audience. Looks like my efforts were successful.
G: Do you think that small dicks have a bad rep?
NG: Yes. That’s the media’s fault, I think. For both men and women, they push out images of people who just aren’t regular normal people. The size of a man’s penis does not matter for who he is as a person or in a relationship. Same thing with breast size. We’re all made in different shapes and sizes, but the media puts pressure on people to look a certain way. Most people do not look that way. Some people let that false sense of body image upset them and they shouldn’t be upset at all. Even worse, some people use those false standards and judge other people. It’s disconcerting.
Congratulations, Nick! Stop by the Queerty office sometime and we’ll throw you an extra-special bearbeque.
