According to Miel, she experienced catharsis and emotional freedom after coming out of the closet.
The teen shared that for many years, she experienced sleepless nights because of her worries about her identity. Fortunately, she was able to overcome those anxieties and learn how to celebrate her identity.
Miel also expressed her hope that the LGBTQ+ community in the Philippines will get equal treatment. She promised to learn more about the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community and advocate for their rights.
“this june, i am celebrating my first pride month as openly and publicly queer.
“i really can’t figure out the words to say right now. it’s a really emotional and freeing time right now, and i’m endlessly thankful to my close friends and family who have supported me and shown me love as i’ve grown and explored my own gender and sexual identity.
“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.
“i’m also incredibly thankful that i am able to safely celebrate my identity this year, as i know there are many of people in this country that don’t have the same privilege. we’ve got a long way to go in terms of our fight for equality, but that is not to discredit the work and sacrifices made by queer filipinos throughout history and in the present day, who have done so much to make our voices heard and have helped us go farther than where we were before,” Miel said.
