“I definitely identify myself as bisexual.”
Those are the words of Miss Universe PH Michelle Dee during an interview with MEGA Magazine.
This month, photos of a younger Michelle Dee, who sported a boyish look, circulated online. Because of this, people speculated that she was part of the LGBTQIA Community. According to Michelle Dee, she identified herself as bisexual ever since she can remember.
“I am attracted to all forms of beauty, all shapes and sizes”, Dee also expressed. Michelle Dee’s Mom, Melanie Marquez, would often tease her because of her boying demeanor.
Along with the allegations about Michelle’s orientation were rumors about her dating Kapuso Actress Mikee Quintos. However during an interview, Michelle revealed that they were good friends since high school and that they did not have any romantic relationship.
Michelle Dee is the second openly bisuexual Miss Universe Philippines winner. The first to come out was Beatrice Luigi Gomez, Miss Univerise Philippines 2021.
