Mari Jasmine on casual conversation with her grandma about her sexual orientation: "I have to keep coming out again and again to my 88 year old grandma because her memory isn’t so good anymore."


Diretsahang ibinahagi ng model/host/blogger na si Mari Jasmine na tanggap ng kanyang lola ang kanyang sexual orientation. 

Hindi raw isyu sa 88-year-old grandmother niya kung boyfriend o girlfriend man ang kanyang karelasyon. 

Sa isang pag-uusap daw nila, kaswal na sinabi ni Mari sa kanyang lola na babae ang karelasyon niya. 

"I have to keep coming out again and again to my 88 year old grandma because her memory isn’t so good anymore," saad ni Mari kalakip ang isang laughing emoji.

"The conversation usually goes like this: 

"G: So do you have a boyfriend now?

"Me: No I have a girlfriend Granny" 

Ipinahiwatig ni Mari na prangka rin ang kanyang lola at hindi nito kailangan ng mahabang paliwanag tungkol sa kanyang love life. 

Simpleng tanong lang daw ng lola niya:

"G: Oh why a girl then?

"Me: I don’t know, that’s just who I fell in love with.
