Wrong Queen Crowned, But Steve Harvey Had Nothing To Do With It

IMG_4079SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – One would think it would never happen again — the wrong pageant winner being crowned.

But it did, just like it happened in the Miss Universe Pageant when host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner (Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines.)

Well, that’s now behind us, and the real winner, Pia Wurtzbach has completed her reign and has passed on the crown to her successor.

In San Francisco, the wrong queen was crowned Miss GAPA (Gay Asian Pacific Alliance) this weekend, but Steve Harvey had nothing to do with it.

Organizers of the popular pageant announced that due to a tabulation error, the crown was awarded to the wrong contestant.

But the organizers decided that the wrong winner can keep the crown, and they’re awarding a second crown to the real winner.  So for 2017, there will be two Miss GAPAs.

It will be recalled that former Miss Universe owner Donald Trump had suggested that both Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia be declared co-winners after that Steve Harvey fiasco, but that didn’t happen.

Hmmm, did Trump have anything to do with the Miss GAPA decision?

 

PRIDE: Facebook Launches Gay App

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The LGBTQ PRIDE Parade is just now winding down in the City by the Bay, but the one news that has sparked an even bigger celebration is Facebook’s launch of a new social media app that’s exclusively reserved for gay men and women.

It’s called GayBook.

For several years now, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been resisting the urge to create a new social media platform that would be Facebook’s version of the growing number of gay dating apps.

Aside from gay.com or Grindr, a quick Google search would call up many other gay dating and chat apps:

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Zuckerberg said it’s time for the popular social networking site to branch out to this all-important community. “They’re ten percent of the world’s population. That means by 2050, there will be 1 Billion of them, something that we at Facebook can no longer ignore.”

Unlike the regular Facebook app, Gaybook will pre-screen and approve all accounts.  One of the requirements is for account applicants to sign and upload a document certifying that they, indeed, are gay.

Happy PRIDE! Happy GayBook!
