MANILA, Philippines—London-based theater actress Monique Wilson has admitted she is a lesbian.

“The reason I decided to come out is linked to (the project) ‘One Billion Rising.’ Every time I come home, I see that young gay people here are so marginalized, are so discriminated against and that there’s so much violence going on toward them,” Wilson said.

“One Billion Rising” will be held on Valentine’s Day in 2013. A billion women from all over the world will dance simultaneously to demand for the end of women abuse.

    No big deal, Monique! And what makes you think that your coming out will lessen your perceived marginalization of gays and lesbians? Ang Pilipinas nga sobra sa pagka liberal sa bagay na ito. Sa middle east ka na lang kaya magladlad at duon ka pumapel ng advocacy mo?.

    That is why the END is near! It is a sign. D na ma distinguish ang tama at mali kahit mayama o mahirap may pinag aralan o mangmang wala na sa ayos!

    This BADING, TIBO and the likes were never marginalized. In fact sila nga yung number one na bully. Sa mga media ilang bakla ang naghahanap buhay sa panlalait sa mga televiewers nila? sa mga talk show, game shows at mga comedy bars. They demand that we should understand them but they themselves dont understand their own myserable way of life! mga  AB normal silang lahat. a man who wish to be a woman and a woman who wants to be a man. Sa sakotohanang sinasabi ko sa inyo! Malapit na ang wakas! Sila yung sign.
