MONTREAL -- The votes have been counted and Montreal has announced a winner in the“Queer of the Year” contest.
Sean Horlor of Vancouver, British Columbia, wins the ultimate title after a week of fierce competition among four other competitors.
Throughout Montreal’s Pride festivities last week, the contestants showed the world how they can heat it up in the kitchen, behind the camera, on stage and through the streets of Montreal (keeping it clean, of course, during a fund-raiser car wash). All of the excitement was captured on film and posted at online where viewers were able to keep up with the action and vote for their favorite contestants.
At the end of the competition, Horlor was the finalist with the most public votes combined with the most points from the judges, winning the ultimate title of "Queer of the Year." After taking part in the parade on Sunday, August 15, which marked the end of Montreal’s Pride Week celebrations, Horlor enjoyed the Montreal VIP treatment - a designer shopping spree with a personal stylist, spa pampering package and a Montreal gourmet dining experience.
