Jaya gets caught liking Anti-LGBTQIA+ posts on twitter

Apr 6, 2023 0 comments


Pinoy Queen of Soul Jaya is facing backlash and criticism after it was revealed that she liked several anti-LGBTQIA+ tweets on Twitter. This discovery has sparked outrage within the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies, particularly since Jaya has been regarded as a gay icon in the Philippines.

The controversy started when a Twitter user shared screenshots of Jaya's likes, including tweets deemed derogatory and discriminatory towards the LGBTQIA+ community. Many netizens were quick to condemn Jaya's actions and called her out for promoting hate speech and intolerance.



Jaya released a statement on her social media accounts apologizing for her actions and expressing her support for the LGBTQIA+ community in response to the backlash. However, her apology has not been well-received by some netizens who are skeptical of her sincerity and remain critical of her actions.


Jaya has long been regarded as a gay icon in the Philippines, making her recent social media activity all the more surprising and disappointing. Her decision to like tweets that were critical of the LGBTQIA+ community seems hypocritical, particularly given that the LGBTQIA+ community has supported her career for many years.






Many have pointed out the irony of her actions, with some expressing feelings of betrayal and hurt. Given her status as a public figure and her position as a role model to many, there is a heightened expectation for her to embody the values of inclusivity and acceptance, and to use her platform to advocate for equality.

The LGBTQIA+ and current culture war

The past few months have seen an alarming rise in the targeting of drag queens and the LGBTQ+ community in the ongoing culture wars in the United States. Conservatives have resorted to calling drag shows "grooming" and have sought to ban them outright. The battle is being waged not only on conservative TV chat shows but also on the legislative front, with several states proposing Republican bills seeking to curb drag events. Additionally, sometimes violent protests have erupted, further fueling tensions.

According to the GLAAD rights organization, last year alone witnessed 141 incidents of anti-LGBTQ protests and threats aimed at drag events, underscoring the seriousness of the situation. The fact that such incidents continue to occur despite efforts to promote inclusivity and equality serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing fight for acceptance and respect for all individuals, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
