Ice Seguerra took to social media amid the Pride Month to share his experiences as a transman. The music artist revealed that every day, he experiences bigotry and homophobia from society.
However, what Ice laments the most is that his loved ones, including his wife Liza Diño and his family members, are also judged and bullied because he is a transgender.
Nevertheless, despite the difficulties and persecution, Ice vowed to fight for the rights of the members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
“It's sad to think that we are still judged not by our ability to love but by what’s between our legs. Society can quickly diminish a beautiful relationship simply because we are different.

“Coming out as a transman, I knew I would get a lot of hate. It's as if my coming out also gave people a license to insult my character and, worse, the people I love.
“I’ve dealt with these people ever since I can remember. Bigotry and homophobic slurs are part of my daily life. One can never get used to it, but if that’s the price I have to pay to live my truth, then so be it. But when my family is dragged into this, it is painful.

“This is the life of a person and families in the LGBTQIA+ community. We must constantly prove ourselves and go above and beyond to be ‘worthy‘ of society’s acceptance. Never mind if we’re good people, they will reduce us to nothing to prove they are ‘right’ about who they think we are.
“People hate what they don’t understand, and it’s probably why it’s so easy for them to hate us. But we’re not backing down, and we will fight till we get our place in the sun.
“To my wife, daughter, mama, brother, friends, and allies, thank you for loving me enough to withstand all the hurtful things they say about us. Thank you for holding the fort and being my sanctuary when it becomes too much. YOU MAKE ME BELIEVE THAT LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN,” Ice posted.

The former member of Streetboys stayed in the UK and after going there in 2008. He has not been able to see his parents and siblings for seven years that's why he said he misses them so much.
