“Charice, are you a lesbian?” the show's host asks the actress who played Rachel Berry's arch-nemesis Sunshine on the the second season of Glee.
“Yes. I am a lesbian,” the 21-year-old answers. “What is the problem with that? Because for me, I don’t think there’s a problem with that.”
Since Charice's brave decision to publicly reveal her secret, she's become estranged from her mother, Raquel Pempengco, reports Wetpaint. And the actress apologizes to her fans who may have a hard time understanding or accepting the news.
“But to those who can accept me, thank you very much,” says Charice. “We are all equal, whether you are gay or straight.”
