It’s Showtime’s “Miss Q&A” segment finally held its grand finals, and Juliana Parizcova Segovia was proclaimed as the winner among two other finalists. Nevertheless, it’s safe to say that the jury had quite the difficulty in giving remarks to each of them given that all their answers during the culmination were superb.
The contenders were provided 45 seconds each to deliver the best statement they could come up with. All three of them had to answer the question, “Sa iyong palagay, ano ang pinakamahirap na tanong at bakit?”

Firstly, there was Matrica Mae Matmat Centino. With conviction, he moved forward ahead of the noontime show mainstays and spoke about embracing the LGBT community to the society.
“Andito tayo ngayon, nagtitipon-tipon para isawalat ang bandila, [o] watawat na bahaghari, para ipatunay sa inyong lahat na kailanman, kinakabahan man kami o hindi, mariing naming ipaglalaban, hanggang sa dulo ng walang hanggan, na kami ay kakaiba na hanggang sa huli ay magsisilbing inspirasyon. Dahil kami ay abogado, kami ay nurse, kami ay janitor, kami ay tatay, kami ay nanay, kami ay anak. Ito ang paraan para ipakita namin sa inyong lahat, pagmamahal lang ang nais namin.”

Secondly, when it was Lars Pacheco’s turn, he talked about valuing his own identity.
“I don’t need to pretend. I don’t need to convince anyone here in this world, as long as I know what I deserve, as long as may pakinabang ako. Kailanman, hindi ididikta ng kung ano ang nasa pagitan ng dalawang hita ko ang aking pagkatao at ang aking silbi sa mundo.”
Finally, there was no need for further explanation why Juliana ended as triumphant in Miss Q&A. Surprisingly, he chose to pay tribute to his beloved mother.
“Bilang isang kontesera’t bilang isang bakla, alam nating lahat na wala kaming kinakatakutan na laban. Wala kaming inaatrasan.”
He went on:
“Alam niyo ba kung ano ang kinatatakutan ko? ‘Yon ang mawala ang ina sa tabi ko, dahil siya ang dahilan kung bakit ako nandidito, [lumalaban] at nagpupursige. Siya ang aking mata, bibig, tenga, kamay, at mga paa. ‘Pag siya nawala, hindi ko alam kung paano pa ako lalaban.”
