Gandang NegOrense 2019 – Grand Launching and Press Presentation
What a great day for us?!
We started our Sunday by looking around for furniture and stuff for our apartment. Yes! Finally, we will have our turn over…soon! 🎉
It was weird, ‘coz when I was filming, my camera warned me that the memory card was full already. After 40 videos, in a 128GB-memory card, like 2-3 minutes per videos, memory full. What???
So, we had no choice but to get another memory card while we were at Robinson’s Place- Dumaguete.
Our main goal was to look around for some appliances inside the mall, but of course, this mall always has surprises. We found this event called “Gandang NegOrense 2019- Grand Launching and Press Presentation”. A beauty pageant of 15 Transgender Women from different local government units of Negros Oriental, including our local unit where we are currently residing- Bacong. ✌🏼😁
This fabulous and prestigious event is part of the upcoming “Buglasan Festival 2019” which will be happening on October.
David and I learned a lot from these contestants. They talked about everything LGBTQA+ community-related issues- from the SOGIE Bill, to HIV/STD issues, depression, prostitution, education, morality, equality, and more.
We were also surprised with the opinions and perspectives of these transgender women with these issues- which just gives us this thought that being in the LGBTQA+ community, we need to support and respect each other starting with ourselves and within the community first.
After giving their speeches and answers from the panel of judges’ questions, they announced their top 5 finalists who will battle against the crown on the grand coronation night which will be happening on the 20th of October at the Freedom Park in Dumaguete City.
David and I need to be there, ‘coz we’re starting to feel like we’re locals already here in Negros Oriental island. 😉
