Charice Pempengco – a Filipino singer who was discovered by Oprah off YouTube and who has guest-starred on Glee and judged the Philippine version of The X Factor – confirmed a rumor yesterday:

She’s gay.

The 21-year old said she’s now estranged from her family and then actually apologized to some fans after making the announcement (below), but she then added:

"To those who can accept me, thank you very much. We are all equal, whether you are gay or straight.”

Let’s just hope there are a lot more folks in the latter category than in the former.
