Hilbay slams ‘chismoso’ Duterte’s bigotry: I am straight but nothing shameful about being gay
Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay has denied President Duterte’s allegation that he was gay, but reminded him that being gay was neither a mistake nor a source of shame.
“For the record, I am straight. But unlike the President, Agot and I are secure in our relationship and we don’t believe that anybody has to prove their gender and sexuality to anyone,” the Otso Diretso senatorial candidate tweeted.
“Unlike President, Agot and I don’t see being a member of the LBGTQIA community as a mistake or a source of shame,” he added.
Hilbay also blasted the President’s bigotry, saying he was no ally of the LBGTQIA community.
“President Duterte accused me of being gay, and of using @agot_isidro as beard. Hindi ako na-inform na sumasideline pala siyang chismoso sa kanto. Daming free time, ser? And to use sexuality as an insult? He’s no LGBTQIA ally, cyst,” he added.
