Iloilo’s Gay Fairest crowned Miss Gay Philippines-Universe 2012

STATUESQUE Ilongga gay stunner Erriz Erikha Lanceta bagged the much-coveted star-studded Miss Gay Philippines-Universe 2012 crown held recently at the cool Teatrino Greenhills.

Lanceta, a multi-awarded sultry beauty expert, who is at 5’10” tall, bested 23 other lovely gay hopefuls from around the country. Coming close is Ms. Philippines-World Stephie Zanora of Cebu City, followed by Ms. Earth Michelle Biñas of Sultan Kudarat, Ms. International Bem Bem Radaza of Cagayan De Oro City and Bacolod City’s Crystal Elizalde as Ms. Asia Pacific.

Other than winning the crown, Lanceta also bagged the Best in Swimsuit award. Meanwhile, Biñas took home the Best in National Costume and Best in Gowns awards and Elizalde was cited as Ms. Photogenic.

The stellar members of the Board of Judges were former beauty queens Ms. World 1st runner-up Evangeline Pascual, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe titlists Peachy Veneracion and Maria Ysabel Lopez, the reigning Ms. Earth Athena Imperial, veteran actress Liza Lorena, Lani Lobangco and movie director Boboy Tan.

Now on its 33rd edition, the Miss Gay Philippines beauty pageant was founded and produced annually by famed celebrity columnist Chito Alcid.

“Ms. Gay Philippines beauty pageant is not produced to glorify gays. This is a platform for them to further develop their personality, how to be more productive gays, to be professional in dealing with people, to have positive outlook in life, remind them the importance of moral values and their relationship to society,“ stated pageant producer Chito Alcid.

2012 Ms. Philippines-Universe Erriz Erikha Lanceta will represent our country to the Ms. Gay-Universe 2012 beauty pageant in Thailand this coming November.
