The Junior Chamber International-Philippines, also known as the Twin Star Jaycess, is presenting the first search for the Hari ng GenSan (a male beauty and talent competition) on June 7, 2009 at 6pm at the Family Country Hotel and Convention Center.

The JCI is a worldwide federation of young leaders and entrepreneurs and GenSan Chapter officer Edison “Ember” Impang is the chairman of this project.

Admission to the pageant (is it still called pageant when it’s an all male event?) is free according to my good friend Jay-R, one of the movers behind it. They plan to make this an annual event much like the “Hari ng Negros” maybe.
