Anak ni Sharon Cuneta na si Miel Pangilinan umaming parte ng LGBTQ+ community

Ipinagmamalaki ni Miel Pangilinan, anak nina Megastar Sharon Cuneta at Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan na ipinagdiriwang niya ang kanyang unang Pride Month bilang “openly queer.”

Ipinagdiriwang ng komunidad ng LGBTQ+ ang Pride Month tuwing Hunyo. Ito ay isang paraan ng pagpapaalam sa publiko sa mga suliraning nakapalibot sa kanilang mga pagkakakilanlan at sexual preference.

Naging extra special ang buwang ito para kay Miel dahil ito ang panahon na sa wakas ay napagdesisyunan niyang ihayag ang kanyang tunay na pagkatao.

Ibinahagi ni Miel na sa paglipas ng mga taon ay nalilito siya sa mga bagay na nakapalibot sa kanyang tunay na pagkatao. Ngunit sa bandang huli ay nalaman na niya kung sino talaga siya at ibinabahagi niya ito sa publiko sa panahong kumportable na siya tungkol sa kanyang pagkakakilanlan.

Nagpasalamat din ang anak ng Megastar sa kanyang pamilya at mga kaibigan na suportado ang kanyang desisyon. Ipinakita ni Miel ang pagpapahalaga sa suportang ibinigay sa kanya ng kanyang mga mahal sa buhay.

Kinikilala din niya ang katotohanan na marami pa siyang dapat matutunan tungkol sa LGBTQ+ community na kanyang kinabibilangan.

Narito ang buong post ni Miel:

this june, i am celebrating my first pride month as openly and publicly queer. :,)

“i really can’t figure out the words to say right now. it’s a really emotional and freeing time right now, and i’m endlessly thankful to my close friends and family who have supported me and shown me love as i’ve grown and explored my own gender and sexual identity.”

“i know it sounds silly, but posting this truly feels cathartic. i’ve spent so many sleepless nights over the span of much of my childhood and teenage life worrying and wondering about a plethora of things surrounding my identity, and it only feels right that i post this at the point i’m in now where i’m comfortable enough in who i am and who i love and how i choose to present. it’s kind of a full circle moment for me, in a way.”

i’m also incredibly thankful that i am able to safely celebrate my identity this year, as i know there are many of people in this country that don’t have the same privilege. we’ve got a long way to go in terms of our fight for equality, but that is not to discredit the work and sacrifices made by queer filipinos throughout history and in the present day, who have done so much to make our voices heard and have helped us go farther than where we were before.

i’ve also got a lot to learn and understand as a newer member of the filipino queer community, and i’m trying my best to educate myself on current situations and present issues relating to gender equality and LGBTQ+ rights in our country, and i am always open to learn as much as i can especially from other figures in our community.

“happiest and safest of pride months, allies and members of the queer community alike.”
