The 19-year-old Jaimie Deblieck, the previous Mister Gay Belgium, looked back to a fantastically eventful year. His theme was to bring attention to autism and problems of discrimination in the workplace.

He thanked the audience with a lot of emotion and he received a 'standing ovation' from his publique as his work and good speech. "You can fall, but do not stay down. It is when you get up again that you have the power to change things and start to change."

The MGB2018 project this year was the Flemish Autism Association. This organization brings people together with autism and wants to motivate society to take account of their specific needs. For Jaimie, who is also autistic, this is very important. He often received comments that he was autistic at school.
