TAMWORTH’s Joseph Kelly is strutting his stuff in a Miss Pinup Australia competition to show his love for all things 1950s.
Mr Kelly is an entrant in the Mr Pinup category of the national competition, which is a celebration of vintage glamour.
He was convinced to enter after he met some women at Blacktown Drive-In Theatre who shared his love of the vintage era and told him about the competition.
“I was the first male to enter this year, but when it closed we had four or five men,” he said.
“I’ve been a 50s enthusiast for a number of years.
“I’ve been getting into the music, fashion, cars and hair. I just love everything.”
Mr Kelly said he didn’t like some of their values regarding women’s rights back then, but he liked dressing and acting like a gentleman.
“I’m not doing the competition for anything too serious,” he said.
“With about four males in a group of 200 gorgeous looking women, you’ve got to like that.”
Mr Kelly said the winners won photo shoots, featured in Pinup Magazine America and other opportunities.
