“Figuring out how to navigate life in the most authentic and positive way has been such a long +37 year journey for me, and at this moment, I feel I’ve reached some kind of karmic jackpot! It’s 2019 (as my dad put it when I came out to him a few weeks ago), and a great time to be alive LGBT.” He also ended his post with a hashtag Filipino PRIDE.

He also posted in his Twitter account, “For those of you who follow my original music, the songs might have a different context now. To help me cope, I wrote so many songs about being bisexual/gay/closeted in my two albums, e.g. If It Feels Good Then We Should, Secret Affair, Suspended, Every Time My Heart Beats…”
