Angel Locsin’s public service program “Iba Yan” held an online concert yesterday, Aug. 2, to raise funds for drag queens whose livelihood was affected by the lockdown.

The program live-streamed the entire event, titled “Kinang”, on its Facebook page on the same day. The concert featured performances from local drag queens of the LGBTQIA+ community in colorful costumes.

Following the virtual event, Negi announced that the effort was able to collect P100,000. Among the donors were TV hosts Boy Abunda and Vice Ganda.
