‘I can’t believe we’re living here’: Historic Wexford cottage that was at risk of falling into decline is restored

He then joined Ralph Lauren in Arnotts, and got a weekend job at the Wright Venue, hosting in the Penthouse VIP area. Souza did not win the title of Mr Gay Ireland but came first runner-up. However, the winner gave up his duties three weeks in, and the title was passed to Souza.“Through that, I went on to compete in other competitions like Mr Gay Europe in Poland. That was a really interesting country to make a statement in as gay rights in Poland weren’t great. We felt really exposed there. There were protesters against us. It was really violent,” he recalls.

Souza felt he was “doing something for the community” by sharing his story, but it was also a “win-win because I could heal myself as well and seeing that I was not alone”.Souza also felt that being Brazilian and being able to compete in Mr Gay Ireland and win the title “shows how diverse Ireland is and how open it is here”, something which was influential in his decision to remain in the country longer.“I don’t think pageantry is very strong in Ireland which is the total opposite in Brazil.

Four years have passed now since Souza’s time as Mr Gay Ireland, and these days he remains in Dublin, but working in “a serious job now”, he laughs. Ireland’s rental market has been a major source of difficulty over the years, as for many Brazilians, Souza says.
