    Dear Sir or Madam,

    In 2014 Europes’ most-noticed international LGBT-Event is coming to Austria. Mr Gay Europe takes place in Austria for the first time. About 20 candidates from all over Europe travel to Austria to be a part of this unique event. The Mr Gay Europe corporation fights for gay pride, human rights and unity through diversity, in a package of fun and festival.

    Mr Gay Europe takes place as a tour through whole Austria (from Vienna to Bregenz) from June 7th to 15th. The candidates collect points over the whole week and present their host country to an international fanbase.

    The grand final gala is on Saturday, June 14th 2014 in the festival- and opera house Bregenz. Fashion, music, comedy and of course the most beautiful men from Europe transform the stage into a firework of entertainment.

    We would be very glad if you would become a media partner of Mr Gay Europe 2014 and promote the event. In attachment you can find our media package with all the information and pictures for MGE 2014.

    In return we would present you as official partner on mrgayeurope.com involve you in our advertising campaign.

    I’m looking forward to hear from you. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance!

    Best regards from Austria,
    Andreas Aichholzer
