santacruzan sa bayan ni juan


The Santacruzan is a popular religious festival held in many towns and cities throughout the Philippines as the highlight of the month-long celebration of Flores de Mayo during the month of May. It is usually celebrated with a parade of decorated floats and elaborately dressed characters, representing various aspects of the Virgin Mary and other figures. The festival was introduced to the country during the Spanish period and continues to be celebrated by  Filipinos all over the world.

Participants are hand picked by ‘Hermana Mayor’ who usually sponsors the said event.  Only the most beautiful virgins are invited to represent each ‘queens’.  Since gays are legally denied of this celebration, we created our own version of Santacruzan.  Below are some pictures that i took at least 3 to 4 years ago.  i hope youll have fun guys…
