The 2023 Queen of Antipolo TransPinay beauty will be crowned on Friday May 26, 2023 at the City Mall of Antipolo.

President of Queen of Antipolo and organizer of the pageant Shane Parreño says the event is much more than a beauty pageant but actually a place to help TransPinays better understand themselves and their relation with the community.  

“Queen of Antipolo is a training ground for the young TransPinay of Antipolo. We mold them to become a better individual of our city. This will be our 8th Queen of Antipolo after the pandemic. That is why I am very grateful to our city mayor Jun Ynares for staging the Queen of Antipolo as part of our Maytime Festival,” said Parreño.

The TransPinays who will compete are Kendra Elmido Mendez (01), Nikki Bella Hernandez (02), Kylie Soberano (03), Cassie Castillan (04), Jerry Bataller Montenegro (05), Rubi Anne Fernandez Ballarta (06), Ems Mina Ravena (07), Prince Micabel Santos (08), Pauleen Montecillo Ravena (09) and Jek Dela Cerna (10).
