Sybil Awards night

I am happy to report that the first ever Sybil Awards was very successful and well-attended. The girls were there as well as representatives of our ally organizations including Rainbow Rights Project, Inc., Metropolitan Community Church Quezon City (MCCQC), Ang Ladlad Partylist, OneBacardi, UP Diliman Gender Office, UP Psychology Department, Ketchup Magazine and many others. Members of the media were also present and representatives of our major sponsors were also there. We gave out two Sybils this year: one for the movie The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela and another for the TV show Pinoy Big Brother Double Up. Both showcase transwomen with moving and inspiring stories. Here are some pictures from that evening that I will never forget.

Congratulations to the winners and especially to you girl for leading STRAP this year and coming up with this fabulous awards. You certainly looked fabulous that night.

Loved the gown, the hair, the makeup, the total look. Gandang pinay talaga. You remind me of Maria Isabel Lopez when she joined Miss Universe way back in the 80s.

Thank you Dawn! Although I prefer Tetchi Agbayani, another enduring Pinay beauty, more. Hihihi.
