MANILA – Television host Kris Aquino is in favor of same-sex marriage.

Speaking on her morning talk show “Kris TV” on Tuesday, Aquino stressed that everyone should have equal opportunities.

“Ako naman, my personal opinion is I feel that gays and lesbians should be given the right to formalize their union,” said the host-actress, who believes that same-sex marriage will lessen promiscuity.

“Nagbabayad din naman ng buwis ang mga bakla at lesbian,” she added.

Aquino, however, thinks gay marriage will not be passed in the country in the near future.

“You think we’ll still be alive kapag nangyari ang same-sex marriage sa Pilipinas?” Aquino asked her co-host Dawn Zuluata. “Feeling ko [maabutan natin pero uugod-ugod na tayo].”

Same sex marriage was discussed on “KrisTV” on Tuesday morning after its “Hot Topic” segment featured the protests against its legalization in France.

Aquino was recently in Europe for a vacation, where she witnessed first-hand how the French rallied against it.

“This is such a hot issue when we were there in April. Galit na galit sila talaga, but pumasa,” she said.
