Well, that's a post title I never imagined writing: "Half naked bloody Dutch men compete in beauty pageant." Yup. Never in my wildest. Thank goodness, the Mr. Gay Netherlands contest decided to help me expand my horizons, eh?
The beauty pageant allowed webheads to narrow the contestants from hundreds down to a dozen and, boy-o-boy, did they choose well. Interestingly enough, they also chose the most diverse cast of potential winners - including an Israeli Jew and a Palestinian Muslim.
But what in the hell was the point of these bloody publicity photos by photographer Stefan Ammerlaan? Does carving their contestant numbers on the boys bodies say "art," "sexy," or even "gay?" You be the judge. All twelve photos are after the jump.
