Destiny Rose begins telecast on GMA afternoon slot

GMA began telecast of their new series Destiny Rose on afternoon slot. For the first time in Philippine television, they picked a transexual as a protagonist. I was invited to chill at Rufo's and watch the show with the fans of Ken Chan who played the title character.

What made me appeal is the passion of the fans for the actor and the series. It reminded me of  the midweek screenings of Star Trek episodes when it was still airing. Even though the series has comical moments, it still has a serious theme. The struggles and conflicts of the protagonist may be too real as well as the violence but relevant to the story that it was rated SPG. 

It seems that GMA TV series shows empowerment and support of the LBGT movement in the previous projects they had. Rich Man's Daughter is about lesbianism, My Husband's Lover is obviously about gay relationships. Dading is about bisexuality and now transexuals in Destiny Rose. Destiny Rose airs on weekday afternoons. For more updates, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook. Thanks to the Chan family and the supportive fans of Ken Chan for the hospitality during the screening at Rufo's during the first episode.
