Lo is known for being a supporter of the LGBTQIA community since she was crowned as Bb. Pilipinas Grand International in 2019. In an exclusive interview with INQUIRER.net, the former beauty queen stood up for Pride Month and described it as an “inspiring” celebration.

She also described the LGTBTQIA community as some of the most “nurturing” individuals she ever met.

Lo represented the Philippines in the Miss Grand International pageant in Venezuela in 2019, but missed the cut for the Top 20. Prior to the pageant, she was detained in France for carrying a fake passport that was secured through a fixer, according to the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI). EDV
