The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a lot of events being cancelled the latest being Mr Gay Word 2020

President of the Mr Gay World competition, Eric Butter, in a statement, said; "We have been following global health organisations, reputable media sources and also national health departments worldwide before making this decision."

The appointed events and production company of this year's Mr Gay World's managing director of Els Event Architects, Johann Els, added that "We have agreed that it would be best to postpone this event to a more suitable date so that we may have a fuller representation from all countries involved."

Mr Gay World 2020 was meant to be held in Nelson Mandela Bay and Knysna; along the country’s spectacular Garden Route.


The Cape Town International Jazz Festival on Friday also announced the postponement of the iconic event which was set to take place later in March due to the coronavirus.

"With many member countries in lockdown and most governments banning or in the process of banning events and gatherings of people, we have had to take the unfortunate decision to rather postpone the event to a later date for the safety of our members, delegates, their friends and families and also to do our part in stopping the spread of the coronavirus," the statement continued.
