It was K Brosas' 45th birthday yesterday, July 15, but it was she who gave the most wonderful gift to her daughter Crystal: the chance to come out, loud and proud.
In an Instagram video she uploaded, the comedienne-host recalled that she found out that her daughter was a lesbian back when she was still in high school. But it was only in college when Crystal had the guts to come out to her mom.
The comedienne then assured her daughter, “Anak kahit ano pa, kahit halamang dagat ka, mamahalin kita.”
She also emphasized that she is "very proud" of her daughter for being brave.
Crystal then shared in a separate Instagram post that she is grateful to have a supportive mom like K.
"Happy birthday to you, Mommy. Thank you so much for giving this gift to me—while it should be you receiving it. I would never trade you for anyone else. My happiness is just beyond words. Salamat dahil ikaw ang naging nanay ko. Mahal na mahal kita," she wrote.
"And now, I can proudly say that I’m a LESBIAN. Along with this, I will use my voice for the unheard in the LGBT community. I will use my platform in raising awareness and educating the people with the rights we should be granted. Hindi lang 'to para sakin, kundi para sa aking komunidad. Laban ninyo ay laban ko. At ang kaligayahan ninyo ay kaligayahan ko rin," she added.
Belated happy birthday, K!
