Queen of Cebu

Rain Villagonzalo

I just learned today that a girl by the name of Rain Villagonzalo (see pic above) has won the first edition of Queen of Cebu, a new and prestigious pageant for Cebuana transpinays. Rain, who is Cebu-based, was Miss Philippines and she bested 20 other beautiful Cebuanas representing different nations of the world for the title of Queen of Cebu Universe. Completing her court are Miss Lebanon, Queen of Cebu World and Miss Spain, Queen of Cebu International (See pic below).

The Queen of Cebu Court

Cebu, which is also known as the Queen City of the South, is home to some of the Philippines' most beautiful transsexual women. This Saturday night, 24 October 2009, the coronation night of Queen of Cebu proved this all the more. Queen of Cebu (see poster below) was organized by a group of fashion designers called Clothes For Life and it promises to rival the biggest and most prestigious pageants for trans women in the Philippines like the Miss Amazing Beauties. Incidentally, the coronation of the Amazing Philippines pageant happened on Friday evening, 23 October 2009. Because I was busy, I missed it. But I was told that Bem Bem May Razada, Candidate No. 13 holds the crown this year. Congratulations Bem Bem!

Congrats to Rain and STRAP.

That reminds me, has the 2009 edition of Amazing Philippine Beauties happened yet?

@Monica: Yes, the 2009 Amazing pageant happened on Friday night, a day before Queen of Cebu. Bem Bem May Razada is the new Amazing Philippine Beauty.

@Dawn: Thanks Dawn! We are so proud of her. She brought the message of STRAP to the pageant. We're just too happy.
