PHOTOS: Introducing The Very Swedish Mr. Gay Europe 2014

mgejackThe seriousness of ascending to the title of Mr. Gay Europe cannot be understated.

Through grueling competition one man must rise above the rest, proving his gay mettle and securing a place in history alongside the cultural architects.

Oh, and he’s also gotta look cute in a speedo.

And with that we introduce 20-year-old Swede Jack Johansson — dancer, breaker of hearts and newly crowned Mr. Gay Europe.

The competition took place last weekend in Vienna, and Johansson had these kind words to say:

And when I won, I realized that a lot of people, especially young boys, saw me as a role model – to be a role model for boys and girls who don’t really know who they are, and to be able to guide them through their hard times has been a true privilege. I have received a lot of mail varying from young boys needing guiding to old men needing acceptance.

Johansson will fly all across Europe promoting Pride events, which isn’t a bad deal at all.

But enough about that. Since we don’t have any photos of the swimsuit portion of the competition, here’s a sampling of selfies from Jack’s Instagram.
