Spanish doctor Fran Alvarado has had at least one thing to celebrate in the coronavirus pandemic – becoming the new Mr Gay World.
The 30-year-old, who lives in Madrid, was last year’s runner-up.
But when this year’s contest was postponed to 2021 because of lockdown, he took over the title – weeks after recovering from Covid-19.
Fran speaks about the importance of LGBT+ activism – and why he’s sharing images of himself going bald and putting on weight.
