Please meet Mr. Gay Denmark. Muslim.
My bad. I don’t particularly follow the gay world, so the news about the election of Mr. Gay Denmark 2012 went below my radars. However, browsing the Web I noticed a rather original aspect of it which I just had to report here. Michael Sinan, the 34-years old winner, is a Muslim.
In fact, in this interview he explains that entering the contest was an actual political gesture to show the possibility of a happy integration of Islam in every aspect of modern and Western society. Echoing slave Alia in her recent interview, using sexuality as an integration tool can be embarrassing and risky, but also much more efficient than more traditional strategies. After all, when you undress it becomes easy to see how there really is one type of human being, and most ideological battles are just nonsensical and useless constructs.
