MANILA, Philippines — Actress Agot Isidro has set the record straight.

Isidro clarified Wednesday that she and her boyfriend senatorial candidate Florin Hilbay are straight.

“Straight po sya. Straight din ako. Straight kami,” the actress said in a tweet.

Isidro also pointed out that gender has nothing to do with a person’s integrity.

“At issue ba talaga ang gender? #LGBTQIA supporter ako, naniniwala na ang gender ay walang kinalaman sa integridad ng isang tao. Pero ang pagmumura at pagpatay, well that’s a different story,” she said.

In a separate tweet, the actress posted a photo with Hilbay captioned: “Caption this: ‘KEBS’”

Hilbay echoed Isidro’s statement and said that they “don’t see being a member of the LGBTQIA community as a mistake or a source of shame.”

This was after President Rodrigo Duterte accused Hilbay of being gay during a Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) event in Tuguegarao City.

“Florin Hilbay is a lawyer. But he’s gay. His girlfriend is Igot Isidro. They’re always together. Agot rather, not Igot. Do you think he’s gay? I don’t have a problem with gays, but this particular gay is a bully. They always criticize me, Hilbay and Agot, until they ended up being couple. Because they’re always together,” Duterte said Tuesday.

“He acts like a man and pretends that Agot is his girlfriend. Be true to yourself. You’re gay. Don’t hide behind a cover. You were made by God. God made a mistake. Just because he’s a God does not mean he is incapable of making mistakes,” he added. /jpv
