Being Stavros is a short documentary about Stavros Louca, who is often bullied because of his weight and sometimes feels like an outsider in the gay community. He wants to find love, and decides that entering the Mr Gay UK pageant is the way to do it. This film chronicles his decision, the obstacles he faced, the audience reaction and the aftermath of the competition.
It’s a great short, very heartfelt, and well worth watching. Good on Stavros for his determination – I hope he has found the love he wanted now.
