GCash Stories returns with a powerful new release featuring Turing Quinto, as the face of GCash’s “Werk With Pride” advocacy for Pride Month. Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, the film celebrates pride by putting a spotlight on GCash’s commitment to inclusivity and financial empowerment while telling the story of strength and persistence of Filipino drag performer, Turing. Turing gained fame as a contestant on the debut season of Drag Race Philippines. The short film delves into Turing’s aspirations and determination to succeed in life while showing the challenges faced by breadwinners striving to make ends meet.

Just like anyone else chasing a brighter future, Turing works with pride, thanks to GCash. She reassures her mother, “Ako nang bahala sa pag tambling, Ma,” despite the struggles their family faces. Overcoming tears, she performs in her living room, cheered on by her family and supported by GCash, enabling her to receive tips from fans all around the country.

“Sobrang proud ako sa film na ‘to, kasi it really showed how GCash was there during some of my most challenging times,” shares Turing. “Especially nung lockdown kasi virtual shows lang ang nagagawa naming drag performers kasi sarado lahat ng bars and clubs, ang laking tulong ng GCash para makatanggap kami ng tips in real time, and I got to continue doing what I love the most.”

The premiere of Turing’s GStories film took place at the GTalks: Werk With Pride event on June 22. GCash created GTalks as a space for meaningful discussions on topics that impact the everyday lives of Filipinos, such as providing access to financial services, diversity and inclusion, and climate action.

Sharing their own success stories with GCash, the Werk With Pride event also featured a panel discussion with LGBTQIA+ business owners and entrepreneurs Gabby Cantero, Butterboy founders Hilder Demeterio and Jayson So, and Chippy Day Abando & Nariese Giangan of Food for the Gays.
