STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest who was previously embroiled in a controversy for saying gay sex is “unnatural” has posed naked for a gay magazine. Måns Zelmerlöw, who won the singing competition this year, posed for GT (Gay Times) magazine, and pledged his support for the charity Prostate Cancer UK.
The singer caused controversy in Sweden in 2014 – after claiming that gay sex is unnatural on a celebrity cooking show. Zelmerlöw had stunned other guests into silence by calling homosexuality abnormal, claiming “it isn’t equally natural for men to want to sleep with one another”. However, the singer apologised extensively for his comments and worked with Swedish LGBT groups.
He is one of four cover stars for GT’s naked issue, alongside out gay rugby union player Sam Stanley, reality star and Celebrity Big Brother 2015 contestant Austin Armacost and American singer and star of RuPaul’s Drag Race Adore Delano.
Måns Zelmerlöw said: “I have a friend who was treated for prostate cancer… although it affects men over 50, I think every man, no matter what age, should be aware of the symptoms but I don’t think everyone is. The naked shoot was fantastic, and I feel proud that I can shine a light on the fantastic work of Prostate Cancer UK.”
