ABS-CBN opened its doors to many aspiring talents and held a massive audition for anyone interested. The audition is under a show that is currently airing on the network entitled “Star Hunt.” They held auditions for days at Araneta Center and in other provinces. This gives talents a chance to be a part of their current or upcoming shows.
In its latest episode, the show featured the story of an LGBT member named Nicx Devora. When she was asked what her talent was, she proudly answered. She said that she is capable of being a handsome guy by day and a beautiful woman by night time.

According to NIcx’ story, she had always known that she was different from other people. She said that she had always enjoyed doing boy stuff more than doing girl stuff. When the time came, she finally admitted to herself who she truly is. After that, she told her parents and lucky for her, they supported it.
In school, Nicx’ classmates and teachers encouraged her to join beauty pageants. Knowing what she knows about herself, at first, she was dismissing the idea. Finally, the day came when she thought of just trying it out for herself. And since she was encouraged by her peers and mentors, she decided to give her all to avoid embarrassing herself to them.
After her first pageant, she joined three other pageants. This is when she realized that she can do both and that there is nothing wrong with what she was doing. And she wasn’t lying, because she looks both handsome and beautiful whether she dresses like a boy or a girl.

At the end of her feature story on “Star Hunt”, she reminded everyone to be proud of who they are. She emphasized how important it is to just be yourself and to not listen to other people’s criticisms. For that, she has become another inspiration, not just to the LGBT community, but also to everyone who is struggling with their identity.
"Kaya ko po maging magandang babae sa gabi at gwapong lalaki sa umaga."Maski nakaka-relate si Nicx sa galawang mas panlalaki, hindi niya hinayaan ito maging hadlang para mapigilan siya mula sa pagsali sa mga beauty pageant!
