The Thank You Girls

I believe that this indie film is worth watching for, I heard that this film competed in Vancouver International Film Festival’s Dragons and Tigers Competition for Young Filmmakers.

But watching the trailer, I think that the writer and the director wants to emphasize that cross-dresser gays are not subject for ridicule. They are also human who deserve respect, people who are intelligent and have their own aspiration and dreams to conquer.

Here is the synopsis which I found in the official website of TYG

Tired of losing in all the beauty competitions in their hometown of Davao City, six dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans travel north to Cagayan de Oro with a single mission: to conquer the grandest competition of beauty and brains in the whole province. They figure the small town gays will never stand a chance against big city boys like them.

As they travel through the breathtaking landscape and culture vignettes of rural Mindanao, each character struggles to win just a single title, while also battling their own inner demons.

Blinded by their belief in the power of their so-called beauty, they still have to prove to themselves that whether on or off stage, beauty doesn’t come in packages wrapped in foundation, mascara, eyeliners and witty beauty pageant answer. their travels will bring them back to basics of themselves might just teach them that being a run-away loser is not ugly after all.

The reason that most people (men) pursue these avenues is really related to their desire to be better and for striving for improvement to make themselves better. Zenerex

Hi, I’m Ryan Lascano, a senior AB – English Language student of Silliman University, Dumaguete City, Philippines. My undergraduate thesis is on the morphology of gay lingo. I want to focus on Visayan gay lingo, and I have to choose a piece which will serve as the main source of this study. I stumbled on the film ‘Thank You’ Girls after searching in the web for many hours. I think this is interesting, relevant, and beneficial. Where can I get a copy of this?
