Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is marriage between people of the same sex, either as a secular civil ceremony or in a religious setting. The term marriage equality refers to a political status in which same-sex marriage and opposite-sex marriage are considered legally equal.

Slowly, America and the rest of the world has been recognizing the rights of gay men and women to marry, finally giving famous gay couples a chance to step out of the shadows and have the weddings of their dreams. Now that the LGBT community has marriage equality, a new form of power couple has begun to rise through the ranks of the Hollywood elite. Gay Hollywood actors are more comfortable than ever stepping out with their beaus.

Among the many same-sex couples in Pinoy Showbiz World, here are the list of the most adorable celebrity gay couples that warmed our hearts over the years!

1. Boy Abunda and Bong Quintana

In the interview, Abunda also talked about his 30-year relationship with long-time partner, Bong Quintana. Abunda revealed the difficulties, as well as the twists in their love story. 

Abunda said that he decided to join Quintana's family for lunch one Sunday and it was there that he found out that "Papa," his partner's father, was his biggest fan. 

2. Liza Diño and Aiza Seguerra

Diño and Seguerra became friends in 1998. They met through Diño’s then boyfriend, who was taping a show with Seguerra.

Various factors hindered the two from taking their relationship to the next level. At the time, Diño had a boyfriend.  “I haven't been in a same-sex relationship. I was confused. I was with someone and I was trying to work it out with him,” she said.

Even if there was a 13-year gap in their relationship, Diño and Seguerra eased back into the long, beautiful conversations that brought them together in the beginning. 

Seguerra proposed on February 7. With the help of their friends and family, she tricked Diño into believing that the two of them were just performing in a fund-raiser play, “Kung Paano Maghihiwalay.”

3. Perci Intalan and Jun Lana

Director Rodolfo “Jun” Robles Lana Jr. and TV5 executive Percival “Perci” Intalan, both 41, capped their 10-year beautiful romance by exchanging “I do’s” at the Bethesda Fountain at Central Park in New York on October 14, 2013. The ceremony was officiated by Paul Hertel and witnessed by family members and close friends of the couple. Reception followed at the Jeepney Gastropub, a Filipino restaurant at the Big Apple’s Lower East Side.

On Facebook, Monique’s partner Rossana Abueva posted the invitation containing the details of their special occasion to take place at Notting Hill. According to Rossana, the wedding will take place on June 12, with the reception set for Sunday, June 14.

In 2012, she told Inquirer columnist Dolly Ann Carvajal that she has been in happy relationship with a woman. Since then, Monique has also become an active participant promoting the rights of the LGBT community. She was also one of the celebrities who actively campaigned to save Mary Jane Veloso from the death penalty in Indonesia.

5. Arnell Ignacio and Ken Psalmer

Comedian Arnell Ignacio proposed to his singer-boyfriend Ken Psalmer on June 3 last year. The proposal was set after the wedding of the couple’s friends at the Diamond Hotel, which according to their friends, was a very touching moment for everyone who witnessed it. Even the crew and staff of the hotel paused to witness their special moment.

A month after, Arnell Ignacio has decided to call off his engagement with his boyfriend due to personal problems but in September, Arnell and Ken patched things up and continued their relationship.

6. Charice and Shyre Aquino

It was back in August when photos of his supposed new girlfriend became the hot topic of showbiz gossip.

The screen-grabbed snaps showed Jake Zyrus getting cozy with Shyre Aquino, said to be a nutritionist and fitness instructor. 

They were uploaded on the private Instagram account of Aquino and served as the only clues to their blossoming romance. Zyrus, since then, has yet to post a photo of them together. 

7. Ryan Chua and Sebastian Castro

Youtube sensation Sebastian Castro and TV news reporter Ryan Chua admitted their relationship on April 25, 2014 via photo sharing account Instagram.

The two met in June 2013 when Sebastian auctioned his paintings and artworks in one of the bars in Bonifacio Global City. While the relationship has been well received by the LGBT community, haters and homophobes are on the move somehow.

Ate Glow and her boyfriend met in 2013 while she was visiting a friend in London.

10. Paolo Amores and Prince Stefan

From a no-label-relationship, it looks like Prince Stefan and Paolo Amores’s relationship are getting better and better day by day.

Many were intrigued with their extreme closeness and photos taken recently in Singapore show a lot more than just a bro-relationship. And they clal each other ‘Beybi’. That’s sweetness overload!

11. Rosanna Roces and Blessy Arias

Former sexy star Rosanna Roces tied the knot with partner Blessy Arias for a second time on December 10, 2016.

The wedding, officiated by Reverend Cresencio Agbayani of the LGBTS Christian Church, was held at Alexa’s Secret Garden in Antipolo City, which was attended by Nora Aunor, one of the principal sponsors.

Roces dated Arias during their teen years, but separated after she got pregnant and married Tito Molina.
