A model and dance teacher at his family’s studio, Hatton beat challengers from 32 different countries in a variety of challenges, including swimsuit modeling, art and knowledge of LGBT rights and equality.

“I am now able to use my voice to help those in countries around the world who have no voice or equality rights, such as people in Malaysia and Iran,” he said. “We are all human, and all gay people around the world deserve the same human rights. This is just the beginning.”
