Angelina King had penned a message of support to her fellow transgender Jake Zyrus.

On Twitter on Friday, Zyrus shared a screenshot of the car enthusiast’s inspirational message to him. “My manager sent me this and I am so grateful,” he captioned his tweet.


In her message, King urged Zyrus to be an instrument for other transgender people to share their stories of joy and grief.

“I just wanted to reach out and show our support for you. Keep pushing the gender boundary to help pave the way for others who are afraid to become who they want to be,” she said.


Zyrus, formerly known as singer Charice Pempengco, opened up about his transformation into a man last month. He had his breasts surgically removed and has been taking testosterone shots.

Meanwhile, King, formerly known as Ian Angelo, came out as an empowered transgender woman via Instagram last year. She is the spouse of TV host-model Joey Mead King.  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
