Johannesburg - An Eastern Cape Democratic Alliance councillor scooped the title of Mr Gay SA 2011 in Johannesburg over the weekend.

Lance Weyer, a representative councillor in the Buffalo City metropolitan municipality, was crowned at the grand finale show at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on Saturday night, Gay SA said in a statement.

Weyer, 24, serves on the city's health and public safety standing committee and the special programs strategic committee.

He also won the Bone Wear Underwear Model prize and received the most votes from the public.

Mr Gay World

Weyer told Mambaonline, a website affiliated with Gay SA, he was ecstatic about his win.

"I'm excited. I'm honoured. I think I'm still in shock."

Second place went to Alexander Steyn, who would be known as "Deputy Mr Gay South Africa 2011".

Casper Bosman, a 28-year-old fashion designer from Bloemfontein, was placed third.

The winners were chosen through a combination of various rounds of judging, SMS votes from the public and their performance on Saturday night.

Weyer would represent South Africa in the upcoming Mr Gay World 2012 competition, which would be held in Johannesburg next April.

In the past two years where South Africa participated in Mr Gay World, the country's representatives, Charl van den Berg (2010) and Francois Nel (2011), went on to win the global title.

    Wether one is gay or straight doesnt matter, who we sleep with doesnt make us less or more capable to do a job.... There are many gay people working with us who are still too afraid to be honest with the people they work with because of these comments and behaviour. Its not easy being gay or even accepting it or coming out, dont make it harder for people to be true to themselves because it makes you uncomfortable... Dont push your insecurities of them possibly hitting on you on to them because i can promise you most of them havent even looked at you that way.... Gay, straight, bi, black, white, pink... who cares???? as long as the job is done well and our country runs smoothly. Its better than bombs in eastgate and Malema's idiotic ways... Grow up people and accept that everyone is different from you.

    Maybe it would be fitting to also mention the former ANC Premier of the Western Cape, Lynn Brown is a lesbian. Seeing that we punting political parties.. ;) As much as i try to poke fun at it, It is worrying to see the gay community endorsing a political party. In these instances, why mention that he's a DA Councillor? do they always do that in pageants? last time i checked, Miss South Africa didnt neither did Mr South Africa? both credible and acknowledged pageants. Perhaps the other pageants can learn a thing or two :) #just saying.
