DECEMBER 20 A NON-WORKING HOLIDAY IN THE PHILIPPINES

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – If you live in the Philippines and need to have your hair or nails done for a wedding or Christmas party Sunday, December 20 (Monday, Philippine time), you’re out of luck. You will have to do it yourself.

President NoyNoy Aquino has issued an Executive Order declaring December 20 as a non-working holiday in the country. It is finals night for the 2015 Miss Universe pageant being held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

In issuing the order, Aquino said, “I fully recognize that the Miss Universe pageant is the equivalent of America’s Superbowl where everyone will be glued to their television sets and have viewing parties.   Everyone will be rooting for our representative, and my one-time date, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.”

But holiday or not, beauty salons across the country will be closed because their employees — most of them gay — have all called in sick. They do not want to miss a minute of the popular beauty pageant.

The Adobo Chronicles will be bringing you live updates of the pageant direct from Las Vegas!

SANYA, China (The Adobo Chronicles) – It’s just been minutes since Miss Spain, Mireia Lalaguna Royo was crowned 2015 Miss World, and already, there are rumors that the 23-year-old model from Barcelona is a lesbian. Sour grapes, perhaps, from the losers?

To be fair, Miss Spain has admitted being gay, but not this Miss Spain who is now Miss World.

A former Miss Spain , Patricia Yurena Rodriguez, who took home the country’s crown in 2008 and 2013, had previously come out as a lesbian, reportedly making her the first openly gay national beauty queen.

Rodríguez, who was runner-up in the 2013 Miss Universe pageant held in Moscow, posted a photo in bed with her girlfriend, DJ Vanesa Cortes, on Aug. 19. “Romeo and Julliet,” she captioned the intimate Instagram, which has garnered nearly 7,000 likes.

So calm down and celebrate the crowning of yet another world beauty queen, a truly heterosexual Miss Spain and Miss World.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Some 300,000 people are expected to descend upon Castro Street in San Francisco’s gay district on Sunday for the annual Castro Street Fair. This year, organizers promised there will be more booths and booze, and dozens of commercial vendors selling non-gay merchandise.

The all-day festivities will commence with a mass to be held at The Most Holy Redeemer (MHR) Church on Diamond Street in the heart of the Castro.

The Catholic parish is home to many gay Catholics living in the district and elsewhere in San Francisco and the East Bay.

For its Catro Street Fair edition, Sunday’s mass will feature Rowan County (KY) clerk Kim Davis who will address the congregation in lieu of the usual homily by the pastor, Father Matt Link.

Link told The Adobo Chronicles that MHR’s invitation to Davis, who spent time in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, is in keeping with the parish’s welcoming and all-inclusive policy and reputation.

“All are welcome here — gay, straight, children, pets, Catholics, non-Catholics, Agnostics, Atheists, and yes, even bigots,” Link said.

After the mass, there will be an opporunity for the congregation to dialogue with Davis at the pancake breakfast in the church’s auditorium.

Suggested donation at the door is $6.99 per person, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
