MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte said Tuesday that members of the LGBT community have nothing to be ashamed of.
“Bakit ka mahiyang bakla, gawa ka man ng Diyos,” Duterte said in a speech at the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Malabon City.
“God created all of us. Male, female, tomboy, pati bakla,” he added.
Malacañang previously said the President is in favor of same-sex civil union, but not same-sex marriage. - report from Vivienne Gulla, ABS-CBN News
