Jack Titus is set to compete in the upcoming Mr. Gay World USA pageant representing the state of Nevada.

The graduating medical student of University of Nevada Las Vegas has enlisted some of the big names in pageantry to help him be the first Asian winner of Mr. Gay World USA.

His Q&A coach is Miss Universe Thailand 2019 and Miss Universe Top 5 finalist, Fahsai Paweesuda Drouin.

During the virtual press conference on Saturday, October 23, he said that he learned a lot from Fahsai.

"I reached out to her because I'm a fan of her because she's a fighter and she joined a pageant that's why I learned a lot, the real experience from her. She teach me how to answer the question because first of all I don't even know how to talk like face to face because I'm an introvert. So I learned a lot from her," he said.

When asked if she is strict during their session, he said in jest, "can I say yes?"

"When she become my teacher, my pageant coach, she said she's gonna be really strict. But she said she want to improve me to be a better version of myself. I really learned a lot, yes. She teach me a lot. [During our session], she [does] not allow me to speak Thai with each other. So I have to speak English with her all the time," he added

Standing 6"1 tall, he is a volunteer at the center for The Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada.

The Thai American decided to join and compete for Mr. Gay World USA 2021 to echo and promote his advocacy “We Are One” which aim to speak about gender equality and anti bullying and by joining Mr Gay World USA.

He also wishes to have a bigger voice by using this platform to promote positive change in LGBTQ community be it with fighting for equal rights, empowerment, fostering unity, spreading social awareness and most of all sharing his life experiences that turned his scars into victory.

Aside from Fahsai, he has also enlisted international pageant coach RL Lacanienta of RL's Angels from the Philippines.

The Mr. Gay World USA 2021 finals will be on November 14. The winner will represent USA in Mr. Gay World pageant in 2022.
