Matapos ibahagi ni Miel Pangilinan sa isang mahabang Instagram post ang kanyang coming out story ay agad ding nagpahayag ng suporta ang mag-asawang sina Sharon Cuneta at outgoing Senator Kiko Pangilinan.
Sa isang Instagram post, Miyerkules, sinabi ng Megastar na inaasahan niyang gagawa ng atensyon ang paglaladlad ni Miel, at negatibo aniya ang marami dito.
“Lots of people who are quick to judge instead of pausing to think for a moment that my daughter, like so many members of the LGBTQ+ Community, did not choose to be queer. She just is. I believe God doesn’t make mistakes,” saad ni Sharon.
“So many of the most sincere and most decent people I know are also LGBTQ+ and I love them for all that they are. What’s next is that I will have a happier daughter who is now ‘free’ and will always be a good person with a good heart – and still always courageous,” dagdag ni Mega.
Sunod na tiniyak ni Mega na walang problema at tanggap nila kung kapwa babae ang mamahalin ng anak at sinabing hindi nito mababago ang pagmamahal nila kay Miel.
“She is cute in that her crushes on boys especially in K-Pop are genuine. And if she likes girls that’ll be genuine too. She will certainly be treated no different by us her family and those who truly love her. I will love her just the same, if not more.
“Like I said, all my children are PERFECT. I may be a Mom with traditional values, but that doesn’t mean that my mind is too tiny to accept people for what they are – what more my own child? What matters in a person is their goodness. Sincerity, pureness of heart. Faith in God. In Miel, I have all those.
Paalala muli ni Mega sa anak: “Needless to say, she will always have my support and love. No big deal. I love you, my Yellie. With all of my heart, and more than life itself. Be strong! It’s your life, no one else’s. Don’t give any negative commenters any attention. They don’t matter. We do. And we’ve got your back. Forever and ever.”
Sa hiwalay na post, ibinahagi rin ni Mega ang komento ng asawang si Kiko para sa anak.
“I love you my Yellie Bellie. Mama and I will always be here for you. Always, For certain. Forever. No matter what. Period. No more comma. The end of the paragraph. Amen.

Si Miel na magdiriwang ng tradisyunal na debut sa Setyembre ay proud na naglaladlad bilang “queer” kasabay ng ika-52 pagdiriwang ng Pride Month ngayong Hunyo.
“I know it sounds silly, but posting this truly feels cathartic. I’ve spent so many sleepless nights over the span of much of my childhood and teenage life worrying and wondering about a plethora of things surrounding my identity, and it only feels right that I post this at the point I’m in now where I’m comfortable enough in who I am and who I love and how I choose to present. It’s kind of a full circle moment for me, in a way,” saad ni Miel sa isang mahabang Instagram post, Miyerkules.
