Lea Salonga stands for gay marriage

Tony award-winning singer-actress Lea Salonga has made her stand for gay marriage via an Instagram post (@msleasalonga) she posted earlier today, May 17.
 
The photo shows a pair of hands forming a heart. It also contains the text: “I don’t care if I lose friends for sharing this. I support gay marriage, or, as I call it, marriage.”
 
In her caption, The “Voice of the Philippines” and “Voice Kids” coach expounded on her stand, stressing that “because I am a Christian that I support this.”
 
Her full caption goes:
 
“Couldn't have said it better. Don't like it? Leave. And it is because I am a Christian that I support this. Jesus was asked: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments," (Matt 22:36-40, Amp). #YesToGayMarriage.”
 
In a tweet last January, the Broadway diva declared her stand for gender equality, saying that "all rights [are] for all people" and that "[we] cannot deny one segment of the population certain rights."

Lea has been married to Robert Chien for 11 years now. They have one daughter, Nicole.
