Forty lovely candidates vying for the first ever Ilocos Sur LGBT Festival of Queen 2023 crown flaunted their festival costumes, followed by a swimsuit competition wherein candidates were on fire wearing their purple two-piece swimsuit.

In addition, the crowd and the judges were stunned by the grace and elegance of the candidates as they walked on stage during the evening gown competition segment.

Their performance during the pre-pageant will serve as one of the keys in order for them to advance one step closer to the crown.
