Charice Pempengco, who became internationally famous after appearing both at Oprah Winfrey’s and Ellen DeGeneres’ shows is now an out and proud lesbian. I don’t know if there were any filmed interviews where she has stated the words out loud that, “Yes I am a lesbian”. But then again, if you proclaim to come out, what else would it be? I am happy for Charice Pempengco.
I was only able to find out about this news through the Philippine media outlet and other entertainment portals online. I don’t know much about other tidbits or gossips surrounding her, but I am glad to have heard this piece of news. I say, the more lesbians out in the spotlight the merrier it is.
The only thing I will comment on is the one made by her detractors and by other ignorant people. Stop making criticisms about her look or her style. Stop the misogyny. Stop the hate. Learn to accept people for who they are. Lesbians are all shapes, sizes, colours, and yes, even hair styles. Just keep out of it. I will stop my rant here, lest it spoil this good news.
So, hooray for Charice Pempengco!
