K Brosas is one proud mother to daughter Crystal, who publicly came out as lesbian in K's recent vlog!

A few hours before her birthday on Wednesday, July 15, K Brosas took to her official YouTube channel to make an announcement alongside her 22-year-old daughter Crystal.

The comedienne-singer, who turned 45, told the reason behind her close-to-midnight vlog.

"Napag-usapan namin ng anak ko na gawin 'to," she said. "At the same time, sinabi niya [na] it's about time at sinabi ko naman sa kanya na 'Are you sure?'"

"Bilang ina [...] at legal age naman siya, parang birthday gift ko sa kanya. Ako may birthday, ahh! Kaloka!" K added. "So, here we go. Ang anak ko po ay…"

K would then let Crystal finish her sentence.

"Ako po si Crystal and I'm a lesbian. I'm gay," she proudly announced.

K, then, said that she knew of her daughter's sexual preference ever since she was in high school.

"Wala akong galit, wala akong bwiset. Tinanggap ko," she said.

The two began to recall when Crystal came out, which they described as an "unfortunate incident."

"'Yong anak ko, nag-iiiyak," K recalled. "Ako, kalmado. Sabi ko 'Anak, kahit ano pa, kahit halamang dagat ka pa, mamahalin kita.' kasi 'yon ang unconditional love bilang magulang."

She immediately called the attention of her viewers who are hardcore Christians, who are known non-believers of LGBTQ+ equality.

"Pasensya na po, ahh, sa mga Christian," she said. "Nag-iisang anak ko 'to, eh. Kung anong gusto niya, susuportahan ko tulad ng kanyang music, pag-co-compose, napakagaling sumayaw, nag-gi-gitara,"

After jokingly describing her daughter as "ambidextrous" because of her many talents, K recalled asking Crystal if she wanted to come out this year, to which she agreed, in tears.

"So, now, we're here," the Tawag Ng Tanghalan hurado said. "'Yon ang ginagawa namin sa video na 'to. [...] Ang sexual preference ng anak ko, walang kinalaman sa pagmamahal ko sa kanya."

She, then, had a message to those parents who shun their children who are members of the LGBTQ+ community.

"Kung anak mo 'yan, unconditional [love] 'yan," K pressed. "And I'm very proud sa anak ko. Nagtatrabaho siya ngayon, napaka-talented, jusko."

Being the supportive mother that she is, K always asks her daughter when she will produce her next composition and gives her all the gadgets she needs to do her talents.

"'Yong kanyang sexual preference, hindi 'yon hadlang kasi nag-iisa ko lang 'to. Actually, kahit hindi ko 'to nag-iisa, kahit pito sila," K said. "That won't change the fact na tanggap ko siya. So, now, we're saying na…"

"I'm gay, yeah. Now out and proud," Crystal continued.

K reiterated that she is super proud and supportive of her only daughter before exchanging "I love yous" to one another.

The "Natatawa Ako" singer then started tearing up, because some viewers and, even, family members would question her acceptance towards her daughter's sexual preference.

"Alam ko na, eh. [Sasabihin nila na] meron kang mali na ginawa bakit lumaking ganyan ang anak mo. Alam ko na 'yan," she tearfully said. "Pero mas importante 'yong kaligayahan ng anak ko, eh. Ito ang gusto niya. So wala kayong pakialam mga dimunyo kayo! Charot!"

"I love my daughter," she continued. "And alam ko na po ito years ago, and I support her. Maganda ang relationship namin, wala kaming tinatago. Tinago lang namin 'to. Ito lang naman kasi sabi ko dapat may right time so 'eto 'yong birthday gift ko sa kanya. Nakakatawa, 'di ba?"

She pleaded to parents who disapprove of their LGBTQ+ children to have pity with them because it does not affect who they are as a person.

"Wala akong pakialam, mga dimunyo kayo! Napaka-talented [nito]," K repeated. "Naba-bother ako sa mga magulang na dini-disown 'yong mga anak nila."

K considers this vlog as her advanced birthday gift for Crystal, who will be turning 23 in August.

"Gusto niyang mag-out at nire-respeto ko 'yon at sinusuportohan ko 'yon. That's it," K said. 

"Sa mga fans kong nakakaintindi, maraming maraming salamat," she went on. "Sa mga mambabash, shutangina, bes! Charot."

After giving her tearful daughter a hug, K elft a message to all parents watching.

"Mahalin niyo mga anak niyo," she said.. "Kahit ano pa 'yan, kahit halamang dagat, mga dimunyo kayo. Okay. Happy?"

"Happy. I'm so proud. I love you," Crystal answered, hugging her mother.

"Love, love, love. Equality!" K concluded.

After the video was uploaded, Crystal took to Instagram to narrate her coming out journey.

"Being in the closet for years was hard," she began. "There were lots of struggles, challenges, and pain that molded me into the person that I am now."

Her struggles affected her interaction with people, her talent in making music, and her love life.

Crystal, then, narrated that she was having a constant battle with her inner self, questioning if what she felt was wrong. Her doubts pushed her into pursuing boys.

However, in the end, she realized that her sexual preference is never a choice.

"You should NEVER force yourself to be straight because being gay IS NOT WRONG in the first place," she wrote.

After that, she recalled the time she came out to her mother, who already knew about it years ago. She was in tears when she finally said it to her, accepting her with open arms, saying it was the best days of her life.

"And now, look at me. Posting this in public. Letting the world know the real me with my mom by my side," she went on. "No more hiding, no more pain, and no more pretending. Wala na dapat akong kakatakutan. Dahil ngayon, ang sarap, ang saya, at ang ginhawa sa pakiramdam na tapos na. Nanalo na ko. Masaya na ko."

Greeting her mother a happy birthday, she thanked her for the gift and saying she would never trade her for anyone else.

"Salamat dahil ikaw ang naging nanay ko. Mahal na mahal kita," she addressed to K.

To conclude her post, Crystal proudly said she is a lesbian, while vowing to use her voice for the voiceless members of the LGBTQ+ community and to educate people.

"Hindi lang to para sa akin, kundi para sa aking komunidad. Laban ninyo ang laban ko. At ang kaligayahan ninyo ay kaligayahan ko din," Crystal said. 

"Love is love. Hands up my fellow androgrynous lesbians!" she concluded.
