With all the issues surrounding the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community over the past weeks, TV host and hair-salon tycoon Ricky Reyes didn’t miss the chance to air his thoughts on many of those.

He encouraged fellow LGBT members to keep their issues to themselves. He also advised them to know their place.

“Ako this year lahat ng LGBT, nilikom ko silang lahat. Sabi ko, tigilan ninyo ang kabaklaan. Huwag na kayong magbistida sa kalye kasi lalo lang tayong pagtatawanan ng tao. Okay?

“Dapat tumulong tayo sa kapwa para mahalin tayo ng mga tao. At lagi kong sinasabi, ang bakla, walang ibang makakaintindi kundi bakla lang talaga. At ang affair ng mga bakla, dapat sa atin lang ‘yan. Huwag nating ipangalandakan sa tao,” he said based on a video uploaded by a certain Timmy Basil on YouTube.

On the comfort room issue, Ricky echoed the sentiments of singer Jake Zyrus, who earlier said that transgenders should use the restroom based on anatomy, not identity.

“Nirerespeto kita bilang tao. Nirerespeto kita bilang bading. Pero lumugar tayo sa tamang lugar, ‘di ba? Kung ikaw, babaeng-babae at hindi na mabubuking, eh ‘di lumusot ka kung makakalusot ka. Pero kung hindi ka makakalusot, anong problema mo? Meron naman tayong gay community. May gay pageant naman tayo. Bakit tayo pupunta sa mga lugar na pagpipilitan mo na girl ka eh, may bar naman para sa mga bading ‘di ba? Doon ka sa lugar natin. Bakit kailangan mong makipagsiksikan?”

Mother Ricky said he does not see the need for the passage of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identiry and Expression Equality (SOGIE) Bill.

“Basta ang bakla ay bakla,” he stressed. “Ang bakla, gilingin mo man ‘yan, ang labas niyan baklang hamburger.”

The veteran hairdresser also does not believe in same-sex marriage.
