Marine Wins Mr. Gay World USA, Is Asking And Telling Everyone About It

mr-gay-world-usa-marineMarine Matthew Simmons from Nevada will represent the USA in the prestigious (as prestigious as a gay male beauty pageant can be) Mr. Gay World.

The 25-year-old posed in his uniform and stripped down to his skimpy speedo during the swimsuit round, which, being a prestigious gay male beauty pageant, we’re assuming is every round. We’re also assuming Matthew snatched 10s across the board, based on these pics alone.

According to Simmons’ Mr. Gay World USA bio:

I dream to inspire my peers to overcome the tough obstacles in their life and strive to be the best person they can, never giving up on their dreams and never losing sight of who they are. Traveling to and living in many foreign countries for the better part of my childhood has allowed me to gain a respect for people living in other parts of the world that may not be as fortunate as many Americans are. I believe this makes me relatable to a diverse range of men, giving them someone they can easily look up to.

All shade aside, the organizers of Mr. Gay World want the pageant to be more than just hunks parading around in their skivvies.

“We want to turn the competition into a showcase that uses gay for good,” executive producer and judge Jarl Haugedal said. “The Mr Gay World USA competition is a prime example of activism meets entertainment and we are so proud to see each of the competitors stick to their platforms and grow as individuals.”

The pageant’s alleged mission is to highlight LGBT discrimination and provide positive role models — as embodied by current title holder, New Zealand’s super straight-acting Andreas Derleth. Perhaps Simmons’ worldview will bring a bit more to the title this time around.

      I almost peed in my pants when I read this because I was laughing so hard.

      This is hysterical: ” I dream to inspire my peers to overcome the tough obstacles in their life and strive to be the best person they can, never giving up on their dreams and never losing sight of who they are.”

      And he’s going to do this by being in a gay beauty pageant and in a speedo? He’s the next Mother Theresa!

      Those three are the worst of the worst around here. Hooray for other viewpoints, but I don’t think they’ve ever contributed to a posting in a constructive manner.

      Yes. We should cheer the ridiculous quote the Mr. Gay World organization released when they picked a guy who participated on porn. . I love how just because you don’t say the PC gay thing about so called gay issues that means you aren’t being constructive. lol

      All you said is you laughed so hard you peed your pants. How is that constructive? Make a case for your views and back them up with rational thought.

      This is why I was supposed to attend, but didn’t.

      White and blond! The stereotypical White perception of “All American”. Why am I NOT surprised? All of the other contestants, epsecially the non-White ones were probably just filler.

      As for his being a Marine, it makes for a good headline to edge him out of the others. So sad for this to be Gay Pride week here, and nothing has changed. Acts like this is why we are our own worst enemy. And the longest we allow media outlets and events run like this these form our perceptions of what’s right to lust after, the more doomed we will become.

      Isn’t is against military law to wear your uniform at this kind of an event? The Marines have disallowed the wearing of any uniform off base. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/21383705/ns/us_news-military/t/new-marine-dress-code-no-cammies-base/ So I’m pretty sure this guy is not a marine.

      @Dixie Rect:
      Haven’t seen so much internalized homophobia like that on this page since I last went to church. People, get a grip and more importantly, get a life.

      @mykelb: Erm, you are quoting an NBC news article that is over 6 years old, that is saying that Marines can’t even pump gas off-post in camo? Laughable, at best, schmuck.

      Try this: From the source:

      http://www.marcorsyscom.usmc.mil/sites/mcub/pages/Uniform%20Regs%20Chapters%5CChapter%2011_files%5CChapter%2011.htm

      So, in sum, if he got out of the service, he can do whatever he damn well pleases. It’s his prerogative.

      He looks familiar to me as part of an Active Duty foursome in which he’s trading swallowing techniques with David B (Trevor Knight’s husband).
