We already know that it's not easy being a lesbian/bi/trans in the Philippines because it's both a personal and social issue that we face. Whether it's ourselves, our family, friends and people in general, coming out isn't so easy. Of course it's not as difficult here in the Philippines as it is in countries like Korea.

In the media today, we see Aiza Seguerra, Charice, and know of other (closeted) lesbians that are out and proud. There's Beki boxer, although gay themed, still depicts homosexuality.

Kayo, what do you want to see in the media?

Mine would be an actual tv series that has a gay or lesbian character and really develop them as they move through society.

I'd like to see more of the diversity of queerness in media. "That's my tomboy" is one thing, and it's a stereotype that's already hard to beat. I would like to hope that these stereotypes cease to exist. One of those contestants may have been bi - leaning towards females, or queer, or asexual, or trans. And somewhere, someone watching who doesn't fit the stereotype may suddenly feel pressured or feel less "gay", more confused, etc.
