(Mandaluyong City). LoveYourself, Inc. in partnership with the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) invites everyone to the 3:00 p.m. show of Care Divas on 5 February 2017 at the PETA Theater Centre in New Manila, Quezon City.
“This partnership with PETA is also a great way of tapping the arts as a means to educate the public not just with the plight of OFWs but with the struggles of the LGBT community including the stigma on HIV and social limitations,” LoveYourself Executive Director Ronivinn G. Pagtakhan said.

Care Divas will be re-staged as PETA’s flagship production for its 50th anniversary. It is a musical drama that tells the story of five transgender Overseas Filipino Workers in Israel who work as care givers and take the stage as drag queen performers at night. The production focuses on the struggle of these transgender women as they seek acceptance in a foreign land while making ends meet not just for themselves but for their families in the Philippines.
While the hit-musical will run from 3 February to 19 March, only the 3:00 p.m. show on 5 February is dedicated to LoveYourself.

“Care Divas” is a disarmingly funny and candid musical drama about five transgender women, all overseas Filipino workers in Israel, who work as care givers in the morning and transform into glamorous drag queen performers come night fall. While desperate to make ends meet in another country, they also struggle to search for freedom and acceptance in a foreign land.

The play’s theatrical and wickedly funny text, written by award-winning playwright, Liza Magtoto cradles lovely, gentle moments that mull over the lives of the main characters: the kind and loving Chelsea, the often-sarcastic group leader Shai, the ditsy Thalia, the bubbly Kayla and the ill-tempered Jonee.

Through the telling of the individual characters’ stories, as well as their narrative as a group, the audience learns about the humanity of transgender women, their hopes and dreams, their weaknesses and strengths, their struggles and victories. Through “Care Divas” it is hoped that we are able to advocate acceptance and support of LGBTs, by non-LGBTs, by those from within the community, and most especially that acceptance and self-respect that can only come from the self.

“Care Divas” gathered six major awards in the 2011 PHILSTAGE Gawad Buhay awards: Outstanding Musical Production

Outstanding Ensemble Performance for a Musical
Outstanding Original Libretto
Outstanding Musical Direction
Outstanding Choreography
Outstanding Male Lead Performance in a Musical

LoveYourself will be staging the musical play both as an educational intervention and a fundraising charity show on February 5, 2017 at 3:00 PM, PETA Theater in Quezon City. 100% of the profits will support LoveYourself’s HIV education, testing and treatment services, all given for free.

Dear Migs,

I just want to share this with you.

I never did something sexually before. Though I am on the right age (I think), I choose not to because.. reasons. (I am still in the closet. I think my friends and family may have an idea… but I am not out yet.)

But today, I did it with someone I did not imagine that I will do it with. I can’t even write this down because of regret… You know those young boys on the streets that offers you “massage?” He is one of them. He keeps bugging me every time he sees me. I never thought that I will entertain him but I REALLY DON’T KNOW why I did this time.

Hi Migs,

I am currently, i think, in an 8 year relationship with my partner. We met 2008 and been together since. We had a few bumps and bruises along the way, but never too serious to really end the relationship. I believe that we are stronger than these problems and trials. But this one that came up really is a hard one. We are in a sort of LDR, i work in the North area while he works in the Metro. We see each other at least twice a month. Communication is still constant, morning, lunch, dinner and before we sleep. Sometimes, there are the rare “how are you’s” during the day. Looks everything is okay. Then, he confessed to me that he received a hand job in a gay massage parlor recently. And honestly, i thought initially that it’s okay since it’s not as if they fucked (based on his story at least). But the more i think and access my feeling, i felt betrayed. Because he done something that only the two of us should do. It’s an intimate thing to do with a stranger, don’t you think? I just felt cheated. I don’t know if i can trust him. If i can still believe in the things that he will say.I know, this is so petty for some.

I do still love him. he’s my world. He’s my everything. He keeps me going. But now, i just don’t know anymore. Am I being too sensitive or petty with this, am i being to paranoid?

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

More power!
