Who's in focus?


There’s nobody who likes the spotlight more than me. You don’t have to look far on my personal page to see me being a full on exhibitionist – but that’s my personality type and you can either love it or hate it, but it’s who I am.
 

Chris on the other hand, is much more reserved, more considered and less likely to jump into the spotlight, unless it’s something that is really important to him and he believes he needs to do it.
 

I think that is why he will make such a great “Mr Gay World”. It’s not like we are big activists, out pushing for massive societal change, but we do what we can, through our business and through this page to show that it’s OK to be “out”, be who we are and live a normal life as a gay couple.
 

Chris has experienced first hand what the majority of young gay guys are still suffering with today as they struggle to come out and realize their full potential and that’s why he is prepared to take the lead on this. What a lot of people don’t realize is that 1 in 5 young LGBTQI people self harm and that increase’s to 1 in 2 if a person identifies as “transgender or intersex”. This is quite often related to either bullying, so lack of acceptance from family & friends.
 

So Chris has chosen to compete for Mr Gay World to help raise the profile of these issues, and with any relationship, goal, pursuit, there is a time to take a back step and not be the one in focus. That’s what partners do for each other and while he is usually behind me, making sure I’m supported in business and through my professional career, it’s now my turn to do the same for him.
 

So while you may think from this picture I’m just in the background checking out his fantastic ass, it’s actually symbolic of our relationship – some times one of you has to lead and the other has to follow – and in this case I’ve followed all the way to Rome!

Look the best you can



Quite often people might look at our photos and think we spend our whole life in the gym. Of course it is an important part of our lives, but it’s actually the consistency over the years that really adds up.

I’m 46 and Chris is coming up 35, so neither of us are particularly young, and neither of us have woken up one day with these physiques. We’ve both been working out consistently – me for 27 and Chris for 19 years.

It’s really important to never judge yourself by comparing your body to someone else’s; it’s why our motto is always “Look The Best You Can” as the most important person you need to compete with is you.

Every guy has his own journey, one may have just started working out for the first time, or another may be entering his 5th Body Building competition. Neither may be happy with where they are today, yet to anyone else they may look at them and think they are doing a great job.

“But trust me ... in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself…how fabulous you really looked…You’re not as fat as you imagine…” Baz Luhrmann

Just remember, life is a journey, and consistently doing the right things over time brings results. It doesn’t mean spending everyday in the gym, or everyday eating clean, but if you do enough of the right things over time, then you will achieve the results you’ve worked for.

Set clear goals, be realistic, enjoy where you are at right now, and if you’re not happy with something in your life then change it.

One thing that I always like to remember is – there will always be someone thinner, more muscled, richer, fitter, smarter, happier, more fabulous!

Be happy with who you are!
