After coming out as a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community in an interview for an entertainment magazine earlier this month, Raymond Gutierrez looked back on his decision with pride according to his latest Instagram post.

He wrote, ““My old self would be very proud. Truly grateful and still feeling a bit overwhelmed with the outpouring of support I’ve been getting the last few days.”

In the same post, the twin brother of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor Richard Gutierrez reflected on the reality of the challenges the LGBTQ community still goes through everyday.

“I’ve always questioned isn’t it too late to share my story? Everyone has already seen for many years how I choose to live my life. But I realized it’s not a question of when but why. To this day members of LGBTQ+ community are discriminated upon in the workplace, being bullied in their communities, or even violently killed simply by being themselves. If my story can create more awareness, start conversations or debates, or encourage others to not live in fear, then I’ve used my platform the best way I could,” he said.
