“Honestly, this is one of my biggest fears whenever I'm out. Lalo na pag nasa Arabic countries ako. Pag sa pambabaeng banyo, ilang beses na akong pinalabas. And kung sa panlalaki naman, ang daming tanong, lalo na kung may mga pinoy.
“Kapag may ASEAN events akong dinadaluhan nung nagtatrabaho ako sa NYC, hindi ako umiinom ng tubig buong araw kasi natatakot ako mag banyo. This is a real concern. Na hanggat hindi mo pa narararnasan, isasawalang bahala mo lang.
“Concern na hindi ko kailanman inisip na pagdadaanan ko rin pala. Para sa iba mababaw, pero hindi eh. Hindi mababaw yung pagtititnginan ka ng mga tao lalo na yung papalabasin ka.
“Parang kinakain ako ng lupa sa tuwing nangyayari yun and what's worse is I don't feel safe. All of these feelings and more, AND NOW THIS... just because gusto lang namin magbanyo,” Ice wrote on Instagram.
As KAMI reported earlier, a transgender named Gretchen Diez was detained at a mall in Cubao for trying to use a comfort room for women.
Ice Seguerra broke through in showbiz through the noontime variety program “Eat Bulaga.” The former child star tied the knot with Liza on Dec. 8, 2014 in California, USA. As for Liza, she has a child named Amara with her former partner.
