The Mr Gay World 2019 event has announced that tickets have gone on sale.

Originally slated to be held in Hong Kong, the event was moved to Cape Town soon after because of a clampdown on LGBTQ+ events and activities by the Chinese authorities.

The finals of Mr Gay World will be held in the Cape Town City Hall on 4 May 2019. This is the second year in a row that the event is hosted on local shores. The previous finals were held in Knysna.

So far there is no information about the entertainment line-up, who will MC the event, or indeed which countries will be participating.
