Now, she is set to showcase herself as an aspiring beauty queen. Herlene, who is also known as “Hipon Girl,” is one of the official candidates for Binbining Pilipinas 2022.  In a recent vlog on FAMNGARAP YouTube channel, based on the article in The Philippine Star, Herlene Budol answered some of the most common pageant questions.

One of the questions that was asked was about the choice of some pageant organizations to accept transwomen applicants. “Ako, para sa akin, in my own opinion lang naman ito, siyempre kanya-kanya tayong opinyon. Pero ang lahat ng gay community, LGBTQIA, ay mahal na mahal ko talaga, sobrang love na love ko ‘yang mga ‘yan,” Herlene Budol said.

She said that she respects the decision to include transwomen but for her, they have their own pageant. “May pageant para sa kanila na kaya nilang mas panindigan o mas bigyan ng magandang laban… ng hustisya sa pinaglalaban nila sa kanilang gender. Kaya para sa akin, may para sa kanila,” Herlene said.

When asked if she will prefer IVF or adoption to have a child if ever she will have a lesbian or transman partner, the comedienne stressed her financial status.

Kasi kagaya ko, halimbawa, wala akong budget. Bakit ko pa ipu-push ang magkaroon ng ganoon kung kaya ko naman mag-adopt? Tapos makatulong pa ako sa mga kabataan na kulang sa pagmamahal ng magulang, financial, na hindi kayang suportahan ang paglaki nila,” she said.

Herlene Budol added that she can love and take care of the child even though she is not the biological mother. For her, it is a way of lending a helping hand to her fellow Filipino.
