Mr. Gay Lebanon and Other Non-War News
The Mr. Gay Competition, set for October, is hosting three contestants from the Middle East, representing Iraq, Israel and Lebanon. The competition is neither big nor important - the contestants seem to nominate themselves - but it brightened my day.
Funniest yet, the contestant from Lebanon, Elie Ballan, is a server from Club Social in Gemmayzeh, one of the bars that tries to pretend it's not a gay bar. He's not my cup of tea (I like Mr. Gay Venezuela), but I wish him luck.
In other news, Barra is having a logo competition to replace its boring red box. I was going to post on this about a month ago, but I forgot. The deadline is August 1, so hurry!
