Netizens commend Iba Yan for giving spotlight to drag queens!




On the 8th episode of Iba Yan, Angel Locsin and team bring back the sparkle to our drag queens. They provided a platform for these queens to perform through an online concert called "Kinang".


It is not just a simple concert as it is also a fund raising campaign for the displaced LGBTQ+ amid the pandemic. Aside from the online benefit concert, the episode itself is dedicated to tell the stories of these Queens.


Angel Locsin chats with Drag Playhouse PH founder Jan Lamban and member Ian Jaurigue at a place very close to their hearts. The drag artists share how they discovered their love for their craft and talk about the challenges that the LGBTQIA+ community continues to face. Angel then gives a surprise visit to Thammy Gan, one of the pioneers of drag in the Philippines and brought with her some gifts to help her amid the pandemic.


Angel Locsin and team did not stop there and on Iba Yan's 9th episode, they once again put the spotlight on our LGBTQ+ friends and shared the stories of inspiring queens. Following the success of "Kinang: An Online Celebration of Philippine Drag," Angel Locsin shares more of her meaningful conversations with Filipino drag queens who participated in the event.




Omiko Madali sits down with Angel and recounts how her loved ones embraced her identity, while Daniel "Cherry Pie" Padilla Magbanua Jr. talks about his humble beginnings as an impersonator. Precious Paula Nicole discusses how paying attention to the smallest details helped him master his craft and Jan Lamban describes his family's reaction to his grand coming out. Before the episode ends, Angel hands over the money raised from the online fundraising show to the representatives of Drag Playhouse PH.


Netizens commend Angel Locsin and the entire team Iba Yan for sharing the beautiful stories of these queens and on twitter they wrote:

"To be honest? Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan and #IbaYan of Kapamilya channel deserves na makita sa free TV. It really inspire every single Filipinos na maging mabuti araw-araw." @Jankeerbee
