A Note From a Lesbian

Kyle, 23, is a lesbian who works as a waitress in Makati City. Originally from Bacolod, the eldest of four siblings sends whatever she can to help her family in the province. She’s been in Manila since 2011, and “life has not always been easy,” she says in her vernacular.

But then smiles as she shares that she has “a special someone” in Bacolod (“My fourth girlfriend,” she laughs). “Being away from each other is difficult, but it’s needed. Kailangan talaga eh (It's really needed),” she says. If there's a "consolation" for Kyle, it's that "at least we’re accepted by our families; what we have is known by our families, and they’re okay with it.”

And so, while life throws challenges her way, in that acceptance, life is easier. And with that acceptance, there’s happiness, Kyle says.

  1. That is so nice that her family is supportive of who she is and what she wants.

  2. Being true to ourselves is the thing. I am glad that his parents accept for who he is. It does not matter if he is a lesbian, he is still human and has the right to do anything he wants.
