Openly gay singer Aiza Seguerra and her girlfriend, actress Liza Diño, have become more open about their relationship in recent weeks, with the couple taking to social media to profess their love for each other.
While Diño and Seguerra first confirmed their relationship during the singer's September 28 concert with Charice Pempengco, the couple, Diño maintained, never attempted to hide their romantic ties.
Noting Seguerra to be her first same-sex partner, Diño admitted being initially "scared" of entering the relationship. According to her, she was concerned at first about what her family might think.
"When I decided that I would be with her, it wasn't 'okay, girl. I fell in love with the soul. I fell in love with the person. I've been through relationships… I opened up my heart to the possibility of loving and opening up my heart to love kahit sino pa siya—kahit babae... It just so happened that it's Aiza and I've never been happier."
Diño, who won best actress in the New Wave section of 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival, is reportedly set to join the cast of ABS-CBN's upcoming fantasy-drama series "Mira Bella."
She was also a runner-up in the 2011 Mutya ng Pilipinas pageant.
