Michelle, Trixie and Francine will fight for the Philippines tonight!
Tonight, Miss International Queen 2015
will have its finals at the Tiffany’s Show Theater in Pattaya, Thailand with 27 of the loveliest transgenders from all over the world. There are three Philippine representatives – Francine Garcia, Michelle Binas and Trixie Maristela.
The grand show will start at 23:00hrs Thailand time (or around 00:00hrs Manila time) so get ready to burn the midnight oil following the live streaming which you can watch HERE.

The announcement of their candidacy
It’s now official.
Ms. Gay Manila 2015 Trixie Maristela and MVP2011 Michelle Binas (who also took part in Ms. Gay Manila 2015) will be the Philippine representatives to Miss International Queen 2015 in Pattaya, Thailand this coming October.
These two beauties will attempt to follow the success of Miss International Queen 2012 Kevin Balot, and hopefully become our 2nd titleholder in the same pageant. And gut feel tells me that we have a strong chance of winning with either Trixie or Michelle.
For now, they will start plotting their respective gameplans and getting themselves physically and emotionally ready for the tough demands of the contest. 😀
P.S. I still do not have any updates on the status of Francine Garcia’s planned participation in MIQ2015. I will keep you posted on that.

Tomorrow night, Ms. Gay Manila 2015 will be crowned at the PICC Plenary Hall. One of the twenty-seven (although only 26 are pictured on the website due to a duplicity of photos
) lovely candidates will take home the first-ever title which comes with half a million in cash prize. Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada will grace the occasion to award the top winners and show his 100% support to the search.
Going back to the contenders, you’ll be surprised at the smart and smooth communication skills of most as they can easily give our national beauty pageants a quick run for the Q&A money. I listed below my dozen favorites to take the crown. 😉
My Twelve (12) Picks for Miss Gay Manila 2015
Off my head, I would anticipate both Francine Garcia and Trixie Maristela (Super Sireyna winners both
) to fight tooth and nail for the victory, although there could be some really pleasant spoilers – like Michelle Binas – just waiting to get their moment in the spotlight.
But this much I can say, whoever will end up as #1 will definitely be a great spokesperson for the LGBT community of the City of Manila. For once, I am totally doffing my hat to Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada for elevating the image of gay beauty pageants and going all-out in this endeavor. 😀
