Only few countries around the world have legalized same-sex marriage. The first one that did was Denmark in 1989. And in the Philippines, it’s still a battle of rights and beliefs whether to legalize the said act. Though the battle for same-sex marriage is still on pend, there are celebrities who choose not to mind other people and chose to be true to their self and the world. Throughout the years, the LGBTQ community has garnered more support and awareness about their rights. However, there’s still a long way to go.
