Mr Gay England Finalist 2021

Hi guys, my name MJ Palmer and I'm a finalist in the 2021 Mr Gay England Contest. Im 37 and live in London but I'm originally a northerner after growing up in Lancaster and then spending my post uni years in Manchester.  

This year as part of the contest we are raising funds for 2 incredible Charities. The amount each contestant raises accounts for 20% of our overall marks. There is no public vote, only the audience on the your donation is how you vote for me!

As part of my campaign this year I'm going to be championing a campaign surrounding gay mens mental heath and the causes and effects on us individually and as community.

For the contest heres how the marks are broken down 
Charity (20%)
Written Test (20%)
Audience Vote (20%)
National Dress/Regional Costume. (10%)
Beachwear (10%)
Formal Wear (10%)
Congeniality (10%

So let me tell you a little bit more about the charities:

Charlie and Carter Foundation
The Charlie Cookson Foundation provides financial support to the parents of seriously ill children with life limiting conditions which require 24 hour nursing care or specialist nursing facilities.
The Foundation raises awareness of the difficulties faced by parents and carers who care for seriously ill children and strives to improve the quality of life of sick and seriously ill children by providing information, advice and support

Northern Pride
Northern Pride was formed in August 2007 after a brief gap in Pride activities following the closure of Pride on the Tyne. A research project was commissioned and carried out by MET Ltd to establish what the North East LGBT community would like from a Pride event. These results were fed back to the community in May 2007 and from this feedback a group of volunteers came forward and formed the first Northern Pride Committee.

Your support would mean the world so please give all you. I know things are tight for a lot of people at the moment but you're not only supporting me, these 2 amazing charaties get the real benefit. Stay well
