Iyah revealed, he was 16 years old when for the first time, he admitted to his parents na isa siyang bakla. Na ikinaiyak daw ng labis ng kanyang ina.
“But, in my heart,” pag-amin ni Iyah, she is tall, slim and well, light in complexion.
“Alam ko, bata pa ako ang katotohanan tungkol sa akin.”
Now that he/she is not busy with any showbiz assignment, Iyah regularly appears as a comedian-performs sa isang comedy bar.
