Starred as the lead role in the original London West End production of Miss Saigon, veteran theatre actress-singer Monique Wilson has finally come out of the closet during a press conference of One Billion Rising Advocacy, a global campaign to stop the violence against women held Friday, November 23.
“The reason why I decided to come out was… because every time I come back home here, I realize I was doing so much, tapos the young gay people here are getting so marginalized and so discriminated against. And there’s so much violence going on against them,” she said.
She added, “being a gay woman is something that I should be proud of being.”
