The miseducated Fraine Nur.

The Facebook feeds of social-media-savvy Palawenyos were abuzz last Oct 28, 2014. The online community of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) Palawenyos furiously reacted to a bigoted Facebook status post of one "Fraine Nur." Nur wantonly expressed her negative opinion and irritation over the news she is seeing on TV and other media about the murdered Filipina transgender Jennifer Laude.


The flood of reactions came in the form of condemnation of Nur due to her low opinion of members of the third sex. Some netizen reactions even went below the belt and asked Nur for a fist-fight with a stern warning to be careful since gays are around her and a physical backlash may come upon her.


Based on her latest publicly visible FB profile, Nur is a student of Palawan State University and has an address in Tarlac province. But netizens have identified her as a resident of Puerto Princesa. Her fiancé was also identified in some of the comments to her Facebook post.



We translated Nur's post and here it is: 
"Annoying news, huh. Always about Jennifer Laude. Who the hell is she, one promiscuous faggot who already had a fiancé but still cavorted with other guys? Now, look what happened to her. Death came to her. And the best part of it was her face got plugged into a toilet bowl. As a matter of fact, that's not enough for her. Irritating. It's her fault that she is gay. And only for that, her family is already asking the Filipinos to join hands to fight for what happened? Please spare me. I don't really care. I pray that all promiscuous faggots suffer the same fate. Irritating. They don't have a place in the world because nobody was created gay, only men and women. I wish they are not stupid.

I am just really pissed off about that news. That person is not really important. What good deed has she done in society? Nothing."


The angered netizens have tried to get in touch with Nur to know how and why she hates gay people like Laude. Some have posted screen shots of their social media conversations with Nur who asked for forgiveness. But majority of those who reacted are not about to let her off the hook unless a public apology is issued pertaining to her offending post that has gone viral. An apology from the sister of her boyfriend was posted asking for "peace" especially for the boyfriend who has also become a subject of social media attack.

Nur's apology.
 

We sent Nur a message through her Facebook account to get her side of the story but until now we still have not received any reply. Her Facebook page also appears deactivated - possibly due to what happened. This blog is open for Nur and her explanation of her viral status post.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
