A celebration of pride and equality showcasing the talents of LGBTQIA+ community.

Ten drag queens gave their total performance as they face-off for a lip sync battle during the first ever LGBT Queenawidan 2023. The powerful and spectacular performance of Eva Papaya won the hearts of Ms. Kristine Ibardoloza, Ms. Rhea Blessie Villegas, Dr. Demi Martinez, Ms. Missdi Marasigan and Mr. CJ Reyes who served as the board of judges.

The Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur thru the leadership of Governor Jerry Singson recognizes and elevates the diversity of the community. He always wanted to see Ilocos Sur come together to celebrate oneness. A government that supports the importance and appropriation of showcasing members of LGBT community as a celebration of diversity.

The event became more alive with an upbeat and energetic performance from the LGBTQ performer Boobay and Pepita.
