A finalist of Amazing Philippine Beauties 2011 is creating ripples after it was learned that she was a former male teen star who co-hosted “Master Showman.”
The former singer-actor-host used the screen name Akiro Verano prior to changing it to Zyrene Mae Verano after undergoing a sex change operation in Thailand in 2008. He admits to taking hormonal pills to enhance her femininity even further.
Verano discloses he had a hard time coming out of the closet for fear of being disowned by her family – more, that she might not be able to fulfill her dream of becoming an actor. (Bulletin Entertainment Online)
