Going back to Ilog SB Mark Vargas and his LGBTQ+ advocacy, he has devoted most of his time entertaining the town’s residents by conceptualizing the Kisi Kisi Festival where participants dress up in costumes representing the bountiful seafood that could be found in this rural landscape.
I remember him showing me some of the footwork for the group dancing and the thorough work he did, including the gay community into the festival like the “AGÎ” basketball and the hilarious “AGÎ” boxing, to name a few. The town’s activity center was full to the rafters watching these gay activities and surely drew him closer to his constituent’s hearts. It has to take Dahlink Mark V to put a smile on our lips!
For this photo shoot, credits must be given to fashion designers from Ilog, Steve Genzola and Bon Ryan Gonzales. Bacolod fashion designers Brylie Hiponia, Leonard Geraldes, and Niece Nava also joined the fray. There were also fashion designers Daryl Amar from Iloilo and Renee Braza from Sagay. Famous photographer Jay Amarante did the pictorial in the different natural sites of Ilog.
“Merci beaucoup” Ilog Councilor Mark Vargas for the most entertaining Easter treat! You definitely gave us a fun break.
My prayer: And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever – the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17, NIV*
