I'm Amazed with these Beauties!

Search for Amazing Philippine Beauties 2007

Twenty-eight beauties competed in the fourth Amazing Philippine Beauties 2006 last year. And this year, the search is on for the 2007 edition of Amazing Philippine Beauties. The pageant actually features transsexuals, transgender people, transvestites and cross-dressers in a grand display of beauty and talent. The grand winner and her court are assured of slots in the Amazing Philippine Theatre Shows, which were inspired by the world-famous performances in Thailand. With the more popular performers in the shows getting as much as $100 in tips a night from tourists for photo-ops, the pageant is the most prestigious, one of its kind in the country. The grand winner will also compete in Thailand for the title of Miss International Queen.

Patricia Montecarlo, a statuesque former entertainer in Japan, bagged a number of special awards, including Best in Long Gown and Swimsuit, and the reigning Ms. Amazing Philippine Beauties 2006 and also one of the runner-up in last year's Miss International Queen that was held in Thailand will crown her successor in this year's event.

Amazing Philippine Theatre was established in 2001 to produce the “Amazing Philippine Show,” a theatrical variety show that features Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and Korean folk dances, song numbers, comedy acts, among others, performed by the most beautiful transvestites in the Philippines. Thailand pioneered variety shows featuring transvestites with Alcazar and Tiffany in Pattaya and Calypso and Mambo in Bangkok. These shows attract tourists from different parts of the world.

“The reason we put up this production is that we believe in the talent and skills of Filipino artists in acting, singing, dancing, stage production, lighting and costume design,” said Lee Jong Hyun, the theatre’s chairman.

The company employs 147 workers in various department housed within the Manila Film Center. Lee said the company believes that the tourism industry will thrive even during these economically unpredictable times. In the past year, the shows have been watched by 280,000. Koreans are the shows’ biggest fans at 80 percent. Chinese, Japanese and local tourists also watch the shows.

The theatre has staged the pageant for the past four years in cooperation with the Pasay City Tourism and Cultural Development Office in an effort to attract tourists and allow transvestites and transgender people to realize their full potential.
“One of the objectives of the pageant is to uplift the way people look at gay beauty pageants,” said Lee. “We want society to accept transvestites and transgender people as productive individuals.
