Last Thursday evening, the 26 Official Candidates of Miss International Queen Philippines 2021 were presented to members of the media in an event at the Aquila Crystal Palace Events Place in Tagaytay City. It definitely leveled up the holding of a national pageant for transgender Pinays in the country. National Director Michelle Montecarlo is committed to bringing the franchise to the glory it deserves. Together with her partners – Creative Director Roderic dela Cruz, Branding/Styling Head Justine Aliman and Supervising Producer Tei Endencia – she will give the inaugural effort the glitz and class we normally associate with its counterparts in female pageantry.
Among the contenders, there are several standouts who are showing why they should be the winner. Seven of them are Patricia Payumo, Minorka Mendoza, Stephie Venice Cabahug, Lars Pacheco, Anne Patricia Lorenzo, Sheila Magpale and Justin Mascariñas. Let’s see who will eventually rise up to the challenge and become the country’s bet to the next edition of Miss International Queen in Pattaya, Thailand next year.
