Earlier this year, Jake Zyrus received a heartwarming message from Angelina Mead-King after undergoing successful surgery to become a full-fledged trans man.
In the midst of negative comments directed to Jake from the more conservative members of the public, Angelina reached out to the newly-minted trans man to express her support. On Twitter, Jake shared a screenshot of Angelina’s message of support to him.
It reads, “Hello Jake, I just wanted to reach out and show our support for you. Keep pushing the gender boundary to help pave the way for others who are afraid to become who they want to be. Regards, Angie King.”

Jake then thanked her in a caption that read, “My manager sent me this and I am so grateful. ???? Thank you, Ms. Angie! Love you! x jz.”
Jake went under the knife in June, confessing to TV5 that he has undergone “top surgery” or female to male (FTM) chest reconstruction surgery. Jake happily detailed his transition.
“I feel complete! Dr. Manny and Pie Calayan—sila yung gumawa. I’m so happy kasi sobrang…hindi naman sa ano, pero maganda,” Jake said.
Angelina also came out as a trans woman earlier this year. She is married to model-host Joey Mead.
