Muling ipinahayag ni Anne Curtis ang kanyang pagsuporta sa Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity or Expression (SOGIE) Equality Bill.

Kilala rin ang SOGIE Bill bilang anti-discrimination bill.

Layon nitong isulong ang pantay na karapatan ng mga miyembro ng LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual) community.

Idinaan ni Anne—na solid supporter ng LGBTQIA community—ang kanyang pahayag sa isang Instagram post nitong September 7, 2019, Sabado.

Nakaagaw muli ng pansin ang naturang panukalang batas kasunod ng pumutok na balitang diumano’y naranasang diskriminasyon ng transgender woman na si Gretchen Diez, nang tangkaing gumamit ng restroom na pambabae sa Farmer’s Mall sa Cubao, Quezon City, nito lamang August.

Bungad ni Anne sa post (published as is), “With the SOGIE Bill hearing recently happening and with such a heated discussion ongoing about it being passed.

“I just want to share my thoughts.”

“I am an ally of the LGBTQIA+ Community and have been open about that for years.

‘I have friends and family who are part of this community and whom I love very much.”

Inihayag din ng actress-host na apektado siya dahil sa hindi pantay na trato na nararanasan ng mga taong kabilang sa LGBTQIA community.

“It breaks my heart and saddens me that people are so against the passing of the bill when in fact, it all boils down to equal rights as HUMAN BEINGS...

“but sadly because of discrimination, a bill like this has to be made....

“because, instead of kindness, compassion, respect and UNDERSTANDING it has come to a point where they need this bill to protect their rights as human beings.

“Equality is all they seek for.

“Equality regardless of what gender they identify as or how they choose to express themselves and equality as human beings and citizens of this country... just like all of US.”

Ginamit pa ni Anne ang hashtags na #comingoutforequality at #sogieequalitybill

Kalakip ng post ni Anne ay ang larawan niyang taglay ang kulay na kumakatawan sa LGBTQIA community na rainbow colors.

Lumabas ang larawan na ito ni Anne sa isang magazine cover noong 2016.

Isinama pa ni Anne sa post ang statement niya na bahagi sa cover shoot na ito na pro-LGBTQIA community.

Dugtong na caption ni Anne, “I still stand by these words I said for this cover in 2016...

“’We are all the same. We are all human beings who deserve a chance and equal opportunities in life. May it be for work, life or love we should be given equal rights’.”

Noong July 2018 din ay nag-post ng panawagan si Anne sa mga senador na kontra sa naturang panukalang batas: sina Senators Tito Sotto, Manny Pacquiao, at Joel Villanueva.

Muling umingay ang usapin ng panukalang batas matapos magbitiw ng mga pahayag noong nakaraang linggo si Sen. Tito kung bakit kontra siya sa SOGIE Bill.

Bahagi ng pahayag ng senador: “Women cannot be compared to a group like that because—I hate to say this but I have to—if you are a man, you will never be a woman, no matter what you do, because you cannot reproduce.”

Hindi naman ito pinalampas ni Vice Ganda a nag-status din sa social media para kontrahin ang mga pahayag ng senador.

Si Vice ay kasamahan at kaibigan ni Anne at miyembro rin ng LGBTQIA community.
