Darshan Mandhana is a 31 year old Human Resources professional. Passionate about Painting, Dancing & Swimming, He believes strongly in faith and change.  

His belief is that when each of us shed the hurtful labels that have kept us in the closet and start accepting and respecting ourselves, the world will do the same.

He has carved his way through all the adversities to become an open gay person to his friends, colleagues and his conservative family. This journey has enabled him to understand the pain of being an open gay man in India and has strengthened him to stand up for who he is and what he believes in.

Although He has come a long way, his roots are from Jaysingpur, a small town in South Maharashtra and that keeps him grounded. 

“We are above the stage of awareness. People know what Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, etc. are. The idea is to be comfortable with yourself and pass the same positive note, so people around us can be comfortable and accept us as we are”, 

Mr. Gay world India , Darshan Mandhana needs all your support to represent our country , India and put the LGBTQ community of India on the world map. 

Your contribution will help fund his trip to and fro to Spain where he will represent India and compete with delegates from around the world in hopes of winning the title and bringing back the coveted title of Mr. Gay World.
