Local male celebs try Snapchat’s gender swap filter

If you are active on Instagram, you might have noticed that Snapchat’s new gender swap filter is all the rage these days, with local celebrities posting photos of themselves as the opposite sex, some with hilarious but surprisingly attractive results. But the ones that really caught our eyes were the male-to-female transformations, which we daresay turned out pretty hot - mostly. Click on to see how they measure up.

(Warning: Some of the following images might be disturbing to readers.)

Nathan tried the filter and discovered that he looked like his When Ghost Meets Zombie co-star Ferlyn G. We can’t say we disagree (and neither can Ferlyn).
