MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – It was her answer to the final question that sealed her victory as the new Miss Philippines-Earth. Asked what she thought of gay marriage, twenty-four-year-old Angelia Gabrena of Manila told the judges and audience that she didn’t mind having sex marriage.
While that response gained her notoriety in her country, it was a recent interview with CNN Philippines that brought her international acclaim.
Asked what she thought of the allegations that Senator Grace Poe, a potential 2016 Philippine presidential candidate, is a foundling whose citizenship and residency were put into question by her political opponents, Gabrena said, with much confidence:
“As a woman, I have very strong feelings about these allegations. It should definitely be investigated. Senator Poe — or any woman for that matter — should never be subjected to fondling. It’s a crime!”
It looks like the Philippines will be well represented in the upcoming Miss Earth Beauty Pageant.
