This Saturday evening, 14 local heartthrobs will hit the stage at the Field House to compete for the title of Mr. Gay Philadelphia 2014. The event — a joint collaboration between prolific Philly party producers Bruce Yelk and Josh Schonewolf — will include performances by Songbird winner Jo Stones, burlesque diva Gemini Rose, drag queen Alexianna Leigh, and of course a showcase of some of the finest men our city has to offer.
The contestants will be put through three rounds — swimsuit (yes!), casual wear, and a Q&A. Yours truly will serve as judge along with Stimulus co-founder Amber Hikes, Delaware Valley Legacy Fund Board President Ron Lucente, Weird Beard Revue drag persona Mistor Fahrenheit and more. Brittany Lynn hosts.
Check out all the contestants — listed in alphabetical order — in the slideshow below.
