In many places, especially in the Philippines, tomboys (lesbians) often cut their hair short and wear men’s clothes to identify with the opposite gender.
Yella has lived most of her life as a tomboy, complete with short hair, men’s clothes, manly walk, and a heart for ladies. Who would have thought that she would become a woman after falling in love with a man?
Her wedding photos would soon go viral because netizens just couldn’t believe she and the tomboy are the same person!
Many netizens had a good laugh after hearing about her love story with now husband Jaycee. The two admitted that their love story wasn’t exactly love at first sight, especially because Yella was more man than woman when they met.
“Ang hindi ko makalimutan doon, ‘yung ano, nagpunta siya sa CR. Tapos nung pupunta siya sa restroom, habang naglalakad siya, para siyang si FPJ,” Jaycee revealed.
Yella had no plans of falling in love with a man. In fact, she was already considering taking hormone pills to begin her transformation.
“Dati talaga, tibo. Ang naaalala ko, one time, kausap ko ‘yung friend ko. Sabi ko, parang gusto ko nang mag-pills…’Yung all-out? Short hair na ako, so what’s next?” she revealed.
But Yella being a lesbian didn’t stop Jaycee from falling in love and later trying to win her love. He even believes that her being a lesbian actually strengthened their relationship because he didn’t have to try hard and impress her, choosing instead to be true to himself.
“Kumbaga, parang walang hiya. Respect pa din, pero respect pa din sa gender preference. Kasi hindi naman natin talaga sila magju-judge,” he explained.
As the two truly fell in love with each other, Yella transformed from a full-fledged lesbian into a beautiful woman. Her wedding photos would stun netizens, with many expressing amazement that someone as male-looking as her would finally become a womanly lady.
“Just enjoy and then don’t hold back. Be true to yourself kasi doon ka talaga sasaya. I mean, hindi mo kailangan mag-panggap. Hindi mo kailangan mag-tago. Parang, mas free ka eh,” she advised.
