“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.
