Dedicated to HIV advocacy, Tredway works tirelessly at the New Zealand AIDS Foundation as a Community Engagement Officer and will represent New Zealand at the Mr Gay World Finals in Spain this May. Tredway spoke just after he took out the title, saying "I'm just really overwhelmed, never in a million years. "I thought Alexander [Kachfi] was going to take it out but I'm just thrilled. "The community got behind me and I've run out of words."
