PC Carter, UK Mr Gay, Triumphs at International Mr Gay Contest
Warren Short, Carter's sponsor in Hollywood and founder of newly launched online gay scene The Pink Peacock, comments: “It was a very close event and all the guys competing were excellent. There was fantastic camaraderie between the contestants and we are all chuffed for Mark. He’s worked really hard to get here and he makes a fantastic representative of The Pink Peacock. It's been an electric event.”
West Yorkshire police officer Carter, 25, comments: “I’m very happy with the result. All 20 competitors were great ambassadors for their countries.”
The policeman, who lives in Bradford and has the continued full backing of the force, adds: “I want to continue the work I started after winning Mr Gay UK in 2006 by changing the public’s time-worn perception of the gay man. I want to promote to other gay young men that you can be successful in a professional job like policing - this a huge step forward, even today."
Mr Argentina scooped the crown with Mr Venezuela as first runner up.
