Ricky Reyes weighs in on LGBT controversy

Hairstylist Ricky Reyes has weighed in on the controversies hounding the LGBTQ+ community and the passage of the Sexual Orientation Gender Identity and Expression or SOGIE bill.

Reyes said he does not want to represent the LGBTQ community to President Rodrigo Duterte.

The video interview was uploaded by Timmy Basil in September 8.

“What for? Para ano? Ilang presidente na ang natulungan ko, pang anim na si Presidente Duterte, bakit kailangan ko pang mag-LGBT?” Reyes said in the video.

Reyes said he even gathered some members of the gay community to stop making a big deal of the issues or else the public will continue to mock the LGBT community.

“Ako this year, lahat ng LGBT, nilikom ko sila lahat, sabi ko tigilan na ‘yang kabaklaan. ‘Wag na kayong magbistida… kasi lalo lang tayo pagtatawanan ng tao, okay?”

The hairstylist also weighed in on the issue involving the passage of the SOGIE bill. The move to pass the so-called equality bill was triggered by the incident involving transgender woman Gretchen Diez after she was prevented from using a female restroom.

“Kung ikaw ay may nota sa lalake ka, pag may kipay ka sa babae ka. Nirerespeto kita bilang tao, nirerespeto kita bilang bading, pero lumugar tayo sa tamang lugar,” Reyes said.

Reyes also voiced out his thoughts on same-sex marriage by saying that it should only be between a man and a woman.
