Sky Quizon recalls the discrimination against him after his admission that he’s open to dating an LGBTQIA+ person

He then shared how he dealt with the negative comments about his revelation.

On July 30, Sky Quizon recalled feeling discriminated against when he admitted that he’s open to having a relationship with a man, gay, or a lesbian person.

At the media conference for Kumusta Bro: The Series, Quizon recounted the comments he received when he opened up about his preferences for a romantic partner in an episode of PBB Otso in 2019.

“But more than the–the discrimination. ‘Yung tinawag ko na sakit ng lipunan na mentalidad sa PBB. Of course, yun lang ang kaya nilang ibato sayo eh. ‘Yun lang ‘yung kaya nilang ibato sayo na, ‘Bakla naman ‘yan.’ Just because on how I present myself, how I look. They judge you based on how you talk, how you move.”

He then shared how he dealt with the negative comments about his revelation.

“Para sa akin po, how I deal with it? I know myself more than these people and there are people who know me for who I am, kung sino talaga ako at doon ako kakapit at doon ako magcli-cling on.”

He then confessed that he does get affected by the comments sometimes.

“But of course, mayroong mga araw na hindi ninyo po– na down ka and you get affected pero you [just] try, you [just] try and go back knowing who you are, you’re a good person, and your gender does not define you.”

He then voiced that he does not subscribe to labels and gender. 

“And ako personally, I don’t suscribe to labels, I stick to what I have actually discussed on PBB. The spectrum, I don’t susbcribe to any labels, I don’t subscribe to gender. Ang pagtingin ko sa tao, tao, kung paano ako tratuhin bilang tao, doon ko siya tratratuhin bilang tao, ganon ko siya tratratuhin bilang tao. Ganon ako magmahal bilang tao.”

As for his Boys Love project, Quizon cited how the BL genre celebrates individuality regardless of gender.

“Of course, Tito Leo, discrimination has always been there. Up until today. But I think–my co-actors would be able to relate kaya nga– we celebrate this BL series because we celebrate the individuality /that we have regardless of gender.”
