Mr Sneakers Belgium 2022
This page is dedicated to Bono’s activities. On 19 March 2022 at Stammbar in Brussels, he was elected as Mr Sneakers Belgium. You can find here informations about him and some news about his actions for the community.
Competing with Nico & Keith, Bono was chosen both together by the jury and the audience to represent our community. At 25, coming from Flanders, he lives in Brussels and will invest on a national and even international scale.
When he presented himself, he wanted to defend a cause that concerns him personally in the very first place: support for people who have been victims of sexual abuse. So he will carry out some visibility actions and will organize a fundraising for Punt. vzw.
One week after his election, Bono was already abroad with his sash. It was in Amsterdam that he made his first official appearance visiting our friends at Ladz party.
Barely elected, Bono has already been called to be a member of the jury for two other competitions: Puppy Belgium 2022 (Brussels, 23 April) & Mr Superhero Europe 2022 (Antwerp, 7 May).
In early May, Bono traveled to the island of Gran Canaria for the Maspalomas Pride, the first of the season. From there, he launched a video message inviting everyone to get tested for HIV and hepatitis during European Testing Week. When he returned, the Belgian Pride festivities had begun and, of course, he took part in the Parade in the streets of the capital.
The following stop was the Amsterdam Sportswear Weekend at Pentecost with the election of Mr Sportswear Europe on Saturday 4 June. Martin, Mr Sneakfreaxx Germany, won the competition and wears the sash. Bono meanwhile will be able to participate in the next edition after his mandate.
Summer is not synonymous with respite for our ambassador. At the end of July, he took part in the trip organized by tha bar La Réserve to the “Roze Maandag” in Tilburg in the Netherlands. He also went to Ladz Amsterdam in July and Antwerp Pride with #BEsneax in August.
September begins with the start of his fundraising for Punt.vzw. Bono sells “Sniff my coffee” mugs filled with chocolate. All profits from the sale will go directly to the association that is dear to him.
After the Belgium Bearpride weekend in Brussels in September, some trips aboard are planned.
