A video of the 25-year-old Filipino-Australian beauty queen was uploaded on LoveYourself Inc.’s Instagram page where she invited the public to witness the event. 

“This coming July 6, that’s Saturday, LoveYourself Cebu will hold the Cebu’s premiere fashion auction advocacy for the HIV advocacy dubbed as Etuf,” Gray said.

According to their Instagram page, the word “etuf” is a gay lingo which means white.
