Celebrate pride month with ‘Care Divas’

05:26 PM June 15, 2011

MANILA, Philippines—Task Force Pride Philippines once again gathered the major events that will happen in Manila during the month-long celebration and events by different organizations and groups from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities. Part of the TFPP calendar includes the evening performances of Philippine Educational Theater Association’s hit comedy musical “Care Divas” on June 17-19, 8:00 p.m. at the PETA Theater Center.

“Care Divas” is a disarmingly funny and candid musical drama about five transgender overseas Filipino workers in Israel who work as care givers in the morning and come night fall, transform into glamorous drag queen performers. While desperate to make ends meet in another country, the ‘divas’ also struggle to search for freedom and acceptance.
