    Wow, what a girl, and what a voice. She’s got balls to come out. I wish her the best, and hope that this doesn’t damage her carrer. Also, she will bring inspiration and solace to many a closeted teenager.

    I love Charice! I’m sure this will help a lot of young people living w/ the oppression of ‘religious’ influence.

    Great for her! Awesome and nice to see she’s received positive response! This will definitely inspire many youth struggling with their orientation, especially throughout Asia. Hopefully coming out doesn’t hurt her career any.

    As a Filipino-American, it always makes me proud to see another one of “My People” stand up loud and proud and be counted as a LGBT member.

  5. Leroy Laflamme says

    A sweetheart & a huge talent, & so fortunate to have the courage to be so honest. I wish her the best.

    Alas, the Catholic church in the Philippines is still on a campaign to erase anything gay from society….sometimes in subtle ways, for example: gay-themed magazines (not x-rated) have disappeared from newsstands where they used to appear along side other mainstream mags. Charice’s coming out is indeed brave simply for how young she is and how early in her career she is; however, Jamaican singer Diana King (“I Say a Little Prayer for You,” “Shy Guy,” etc.) coming out last year is even more amazing. Even now, the whacked out Jamaican homophobes attack her on social media relentlessly.

    The first Asian to land on Top 10 Billboard Album Chart is also a lesbian.

    Wow! Awesome!
