27 Jan Other candidates envious of Filipino support, MJ says
JUAN SAYS: We are the land of wit and Bekis. Even women are proud to be considered a beki. Filipinos have elevated the standard of what it is to be a beki to just a mere gay person to someone who has both beauty and brains. Even the most watched MMFF entry “English Only Please” has redefined “bakla ka” to “you are awesome. And we the Pinoy bekis and the bekis at heart, support all our beauty queens because they too are bekis. Mabuhay ang mga bakla!
MANILA – Mary Jean Lastimosa, the Philippines’ bet in the recently concluded Miss Universe pageant, shared that some of her fellow candidates were envious of the support that she has received from her countrymen.
In an interview on “Umagang Kay Ganda” Tuesday, Lastimosa said her fellow candidates were in awe of the strong show of support from the Filipinos especially during the coronation night.
“Overwhelming ‘yung suporta ng mga Pilipino. Recognized ng lahat ng candidates, naiinggit sila sa klase ng suporta na nakukuha ko sa Filipinos. Sabi nila sana daw sa kanila ganun din. Sobrang wala na akong mahihiling pa, the best support system ever,” she said.
Lastimosa said it brings her to tears every time she sees messages on social media that many people prayed and continue to pray for her.
