QUEEN: A Pageant for Alternatives

CEBU, Philippines - On an island famed for raising the natural to preternatural, with a penchant for beauty pageants (there is one for every barangay), it was only a matter of time before Cebu celebrated beauty beyond the ladies and gentlemen. Queen, the first on this grand scale, brings you to the world of ladies who are gentlemen, and gentlemen who are ladies. Join the Clothes for Life Foundation, spearheaded by designers Cary Santiago and Wendell Quisido, in an unforgettable night this October for the crowning of Cebu’s new Queen.

Like any beauty pageant, one is to expect pomp. But unlike any other beauty pageant, Queen brings everything to overdrive: the flamboyance of the National Costume segment, the impossible gowns, the anticipated question and answer, the million and one segment changes, the production numbers, the celebrity guests, all in the magnificent Waterfront Cebu City Hotel grand ballroom. There isn’t a moment of lifelessness in a pageant done all right like Queen. The pageant is everything you expect, with a little extra.

More than showcasing an alternative lifestyle, the pageant for alternatives aims to bring to the forefront real, sustainable solutions to the candidate’s charity or movement of choice. Asked to formulate a solid plan of action for a chosen cause, a major aspect in the pre-judging of Queen, it will highlight how our ladies are not only beautiful on the outside, but the singular fact that it is their philanthropy that sets them apart from the rest.

Screened for both beauty and brains, the ladies are the crème de la crème of this particular segment of Cebu society. Queen’s new crop are both physically daunting with a sound, outspoken mind. They are truly the embodiment of both worlds.

Proceeds of the event shall be donated to the Clothes for Life’s various beneficiaries: The Our Lady of Divine Grace, the center for abused in Sibonga, Cebu; The Seven Sisters House of Mercy Home for the Elderly in Mojon, Talisay, Cebu; Sto. Niño Childrens’ Center in Liloan, Cebu; and Operation Smile.
