'Maalaala Mo Kaya' May 18 2013 - Martin del Rosario as Kevin Balot

Written By Nikki Mendz on Saturday, May 18, 2013 | 11:16 AM

Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) May 18 2013 dares Kapamilya hunk Martin del Rosario to portray, for the first time, an offbeat role as a transgender. On this episode, he gives life to the character of Kevin Balot, the reigning Miss International Queen 2012. (The said beauty pageant is an international competition for transgenders/transsexuals around the world held annually in Pattaya, Thailand with USD $10,000 cash as one of the prizes for the winner.)

Kevin Balot's life story is a very inspiring one, especially for gays and lesbians who still feel unaccepted in their own family. It was a tough situation for Kevin, being the only boy among three children. Though he was already having feminine tendencies as early as his elementary days, he tried to fight off such feelings for fear that his father would not understand. Eventually, he came to terms with himself and accepted that he couldn't be a real man, but continued to hide it from his family. When he did decide to come out, his relationship with his father turned sour, just as he had expected. Soon, joining beauty contests became his source of income, all the more displeasing his father. How could Kevin ever prove to him and the rest of his family that he can be able to fulfill his dreams no matter what his gender is?

With Martin del Rosario in the cast are Al Tantay, Shamaine Centenera, Kokoy De Santo, Kristel Fulgar, Toby Alejar, Emmanuelle Vera, Cheska Billones, Louise Bernardo, Princess Freking, and Dax Bayani. It was directed by Mae Czarina Cruz and written by Benson Logronio together with researcher Agatha Lee Ruadap.

Maalaala Mo Kaya is hosted by Charo Santos-Concio. It airs Saturday nights on Abs-Cbn at 7:45 PM.
