Comedian K Brosas expressed her support to her daughter Crystal who came out to the public as a lesbian during her mother’s 45th birthday.
“Being in the closet for years was hard. There were lots of struggles, challenges, and pain that molded me into the person I am now. It affected my music creation, human interaction, and also with my lovelife,” Crystal said in an Instagram post.
“There was an inner argument with myself in high school—where I told myself, “Is this wrong? Maybe I should try with boys.” Believe me, I tried. But it was not working,” she added.
Crystal shared that she came out as a lesbian to K Brosas during her college years, in July 7, 2017.
“Although she knew firsthand, it was me who confirmed to her that it was true. That time, I cried and she accepted me with open arms. No judgment, no doubts—only unconditional love. And it was one of the best days of my life,” she said.

In the tell-all video, K revealed asking her daughter if “gusto mo ba galing sa ‘kin para wala ng echos-echos? Sabi niya oo. Iyak lang siya nang iyak.”
“And now, look at me. Posting this in public. Letting the world know the real me with my Mom by my side. No more hiding, no more pain, and no more pretending. Wala na kong dapat katakutan. Dahil ngayon, ang sarap, ang saya, at ang ginhawa sa pakiramdam na tapos na. Nanalo na ko. Masaya na ko,” Crystal shared.
She said that now that she finally revealed her true self, she would use her voice for the unheard in the LGBT community.
“I will use my platform in raising awareness and educating the people with the rights we should be granted. Hindi lang to para sakin, kundi para sa aking komunidad. Laban ninyo ay laban ko. At ang kaligayahan ninyo ay kaligayahan ko din,” she said.
In the end, Crystal greeted her mother a happy birthday and told her she was thankful that K Brosas was her mother.
