In the last couple of years, Chiavone has worked to carve out his place in Houston nightlife, hosting karaoke and performing in clubs, hosting special events and even competing in contests which have earned him the titles of Mister Gay Houston America 2018, Mister Gay Lone Star America 2019, and most recently Mr. Gay TEXAS America 2020. Michael is so thrilled to be a part of this year’s pride festivities, in a city that means so much to him during his reign as Mister Texas and looks forward to performing and working for his community in the future.
