MANILA, Philippines – Charice. “My Husband’s Lover.” Pugad Baboy. This must be the year of the LGBT.

Add to that this year’s Palme d’Or to the French lesbian drama, “Blue is the Warmest Color” and, back here at home, the gay rights march at UP Diliman Thursday afternoon (June 27), and you have, well, the spirit of the times?

Local celebrity Isabelle Daza sought to capture this zeitgeist in a photo she posted on  Instagram also on Thursday, showing her and first cousin Georgina Wilson affecting an intimate kiss.

Along with the photograph went this comment: “Our take on equality for gay rights! Haha thank you @markednicdao.”

Netizens were quick to react to the post, many with amusement and delight and some expressing otherwise.

The Instagram post comes on the heels of the growing controversy over the gay-themed GMA teleseryeMy Husband’s Lover,” singer Charice Pempengco’s coming out and Pugad Baboy‘s extended take on lesbianism, following his move to amid its creator Pol Medina Jr.’s own brush with controversy.

Meanwhile, in the United States, the Supreme Court ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) continues to stir debate.

As that song by rock ‘n’ roll’s famous liberal, Bob Dylan, goes, the times they are a-changin’.
