Ifugao Representative Teddy Baguilat Jr. is proud that transgender Angela Ponce was able to represent her country Spain in Miss Universe 2018.
The politiko said Ponce broke glass ceilings at the beauty pageant, where Philippines’ very own Catriona Gray emerged victorious.
“First transgender Miss U candidate. Miss Spain. For breaking boundaries and for her advocacy to fight discrimination, she’s the other winner in this contest. #SOGIE,” said Baguilat.
Baguilat is an advocate for the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the Philippines.
