“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.

The month of May’s full moon is called FULL FLOWER MOON. Traditionally, flowers spring forth in abundance this month, and perhaps a perfect time too to start a blooming relationship. This month, the full moon will be on May 21, right on the same evening when we conduct the DATING DUDES event.

“Dating Dudes” is part of Love Yourself’s series of events where the goal is to have meaningful conversations, among guys of the same persuasion, on topics that are interesting, fun, and engaging. It is a by-invitation event, so if you or your friends are interested to join, please register at go.loveyourself.ph/ddcc to receive an invite.

Well, “Dating Dudes” is an event to meet like-minded guys and discuss these things. Why is it so hard to meet the right ones? What makes meeting other guys easier and less frustrating?

MensRetreat

Much has changed and we now see better acceptance of gay, bisexual, and questioning men in the Philippine urban society. Despite this, many of us still feel the need to hide parts of who we truly are. With a great (but many times unconscious) desire to conform to what we think others expect of us, we follow paths that inadvertently disconnect us from the authentic yearnings of our core. This oftentimes translates to inexplicable feelings of emptiness or being stuck, perennial thoughts of being in the wrong job or wrong career path, or recurring experiences of failed relationships.

The Men’s Retreat, through a set of non-religious activities and lecturettes done within a weekend, will use the power of self-awareness and community to enable you to appreciate where you are in your current life, identify limiting beliefs and behaviors, and chart a new and more core-connected way forward.

Enjoy the weekend at a hilltop retreat house just half-an-hour away from Ortigas, in a safe and affirming space designed for insightful introspection. Join the Men’s Retreat and start your journey to authentic and wholehearted living.

Workshop fee (inclusive of overnight board and lodging) – P3,500

Early-bird discount of P500 for those who register and pay on or before May 2.

See you guys.

I have received more than 370 requests to join the Discreet Meet on December 19. However I can only accommodate a small number due to space constraints and also so that it be an intimate, small get together.

For those who will not receive an acknowledgement SMS from me, that means I was not able to select you for this round. Thank you and I will arrange another one soon, maybe early 2016.

For those who were able to receive invites, looking forward to a fruitful meet-up.
