If you own Magic Mike on DVD, then, first off, you need to get out more, and, secondly, we’ve got just the event for you: HiM Promotions’ next big evening, HiM: Evolution. Taking place on June 4th at The Great Hall in Toronto (get your tickets here), Evolution features erotic, skilled, and highly entertaining performances from the stars of HiM (Handsome International Men). Canada’s first male entertainment revue, HiM was co-founded by Mark Munroe, who is also the founder and editor of Addicted Magazine. We caught up with Munroe to find out more about HiM: Evolution, Addicted, and his life outside of the media…
Tell us a bit about yourself. What should people know?
Well, I started off as model, then became a singer, then actor. From magazines to TV to records, I’ve really had a wild ride over the last decade, filled with both ups and downs. But what a ride it has been. And it’s led to so may opportunities I never even imagined.
You’re the Editor of Addicted Magazine. How would you describe the mag?
Owner and Editor! Addicted is a unique lifestyle and entertainment magazine. My team and I look to find all the most addictive facets in life from music, art and food, to fashion and beauty and so much more. We try to find the best of the best, the most interesting, and unique. I’m really just proud of my wonderful editors and writers and – most of all – my amazing senior editor and best friend, Nadia Elkharadly.
You’re also the Co-Founder of HiM Promotions. What exactly does HiM do?
HiM stands for “Handsome International Men.” Essentially it’s a collective of sexy, charismatic men that work as models for events, bachelorette parties, charity functions, and also perform in our amazing show, HiM:Evolution.
Can you tell us a little bit about your next HiM event on June 4th?
Evolution is just that: it follows the evolution of man over time, from caveman days until now. It’s an amazing multimedia show that weaves in many forms of dance, and showcases the sheer athleticism of the men, while also showing off their amazing bodies and physiques. It really is an event to be seen to be believed – and the ultimate ladies night out!
Finish this sentence: I love Toronto because…
…here I can be who I really am and follow my dreams (there are lots of places in the world where the same cannot be said).
What’s your favourite restaurant?
I would have to say Church Aperitivo because the food is amazing and every time I go there it feels like I’m coming home.
What’s your drink/cocktail and where do you get it?
Rye/whiskey/bourbon… and mainly I get it from my kitchen.
Motto to live by?
Follow your dreams because, with a lot of hard work, anything is possible.
Let’s get social for a mo’. How do we stay up-to-date with you?
Well, everywhere. You can find me on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram; Addicted on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram; and HIM Productions on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram.
