ABS-CBN’s drama show Ipaglaban Mo aired a controversial episode today titled “Pagnanasa”.
The storyline was inspired by an actual case filed at the Supreme Court that involved a lesbian rape case. Kapamilya actors who starred the episode were Denise Laurel , who portrayed a lesbian role as Louie , Bangs Garcia as Chona her love interest, and Bernard Palanca , Chona’s brother Jojo.
Watch the video teaser below.
Whilst this Ipaglalaban Ko episode was airing #IMpagnanasa , held at trending spot in Twitter.
It was raining praises for actresses Denise Laurel (Louie) and Bangs Garcia (Chona) for remarkable acting. The kissing scene particularly was acclaimed to be bold, daring and more realistic as well. Some netizens from the LGBT community can’t help but compare it to GMA-7’s Jade – Althea (Rhian Ramos-Glaiza De Castro) lesbian-themed drama “The Rich man’s Daughter.”
The Ipaglaban Mo “Pagnanasa” episode could’ve been a total success if not for some portion of the spiel that turned out to be allegedly “discriminating.”
Twitter account @feistmagazine , which is described an “online magazine for the LBTQ Pinay” cried foul on spiels used by Atty. Jopet Sison, the show’s host. Other netizens’ opinions were also in tune with Feist on the alleged questionable and unpleasant lines.
Here’s a snippet of the Twitter post series.
Good thing Celeste V. Lumasac, Supervising Producer of Ipaglaban Mo was on her feet and addressed these sentiments thru her twitter account.
Apology was accepted and furthermore, Lumasac expressed appreciation for the feedback.
