It’s been five years since Jesi Corcuera first joined Pinoy Big Brother during the PBB Lucky Season 7 where he was dubbed as the “Transman of the House ng Cavite.” Jesi first appeared on television as a lesbian contestant of local talent search program StarStruck in 2006 where he was in a love team with batchmate Paulo Avelino.

The now 30-year-old vlogger first revealed he had started undergoing surgery to make the transition to becoming a transman in 2013. In his recent Instagram post, Jesi proudly shared the scars from his most recent surgery.

He wrote,  “Hindi maitagong ngiti. Mga ngiti na walang katumbas na halaga. Maaring hindi niyo maintindihan ang sayang aking nararamdaman. Pero sa likod ng mga hiwa sa ilalim ng aking dibdib yan ang simbolo ng aking kalayaan. Kalayaan sa mapanghusgang lipunan. Para sa mga tulad kong parte ng makulay na bahaghari wag kayong titigil makamit ang inyong kalayaan at kasiyahan.  

“Maraming salamat sa suporta mula sa aking pamilya at sariling pamilya kasama ka @corcueracams At sa nag-iisang duktor na hindi sumuko at nagtiwala sa akin Dok @docyappy Mahal ko kayo!   ”

 

 

For pride month this year, Jesi also posted about his scars and thanked his surgeon whose clients also include vlogger Toni Fowler and Tiktok artist Zendee Rose Tenerefe. He wrote, “Pride month na! And sarap sana rumampa ng malaya sa pride march. At dahil dyan flex ko lang din scar ko. Dahil sa mga scar na ito, mas na boost confidence ko at walang takot na harapin ang mapanghusgang mundo. Ikaw anong kwento ng scar mo? Shoutout na din sa best surgeon Dok @docyappy   #happypridemonth ”

Jesi, who is a vlogger with 268,000 followers on his YouTube channel, has been in a relationship with his non-showbiz girlfriend for two and a half years now. Before his recent surgery, Jesi made sure to thank his partner for being there for him. He wrote, “WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU IN MY LIFE. Thank you for everything for taking good care of me kahit na di ko na mahugasan pwet ko dahil sa surgery ko.   I love you whatever happens may tampuhan man minsan. Sorry sa mga pagkukulang ko.   I’m so grateful to have you, Mahal.”

After his stint on PBB, Jesi shared on social media what the experience meant to him. His PBB Lucky Season 7 batchmates include Wil Dasovich, Cora Waddell, Baninay Bautista, Tanner Mata, and Ali Forbes.

He wrote, “Kasing bilis ng ikot ng orasan ang panahon. Parang kailan lang nung mag simula ang panaginip ko na pagkahaba-haba at halo-halong emosiyon sa isa sa pinaka sikat na bahay dito sa atin sa Pilipinas. Kakaibang experience na hindi maipaliwang. Pero isa lang ang nangingibabaw na maaalala ko sa panahon na yun ay yun ang mga taong na dagdag sa buhay ko kasama na ang teens at regular hms. Grabe after 1 year sobrang nakakamiss. Lalo na yung boses ni Kuya (Big Brother) Thank you sa hindi malilimutan at maraming aral na ibinahagi mo samin at sa buhay ko ang mas maging matatag sa kabila ng mapanghusgang mundo. #pbbluckyseason7”
