Particularly when compared to other beauty queens like Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, Young has been largely silent re LGBTQIA issues in the past. But now hoping for others to change their negative mindset towards the LGBTQIA community, Megan Young hopes for laws protecting members of the LGBTQIA community to already be passed.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young – now an actress – expressed her “full support” to the LGBTQIA community.

In an interview with GMANetwork.com, Young said she wants to use her influence to champion equal rights for the LGBTQIA community.

“I have a lot of people in my family that are from the LGBT community and I always want to push for a better future for them so that equal ‘yung rights nating lahat. Of course, I’m put in a position where I’m privileged and I want them to be able to have that privilege na hindi natin sasabihin na they’re from the minority,” she was quoted as sa saying. “Sana in the future, we’ll all be able to have the same things and people won’t discriminate.”

Particularly when compared to other beauty queens like Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, Young has been largely silent re LGBTQIA issues in the past.

But now hoping for others to change their negative mindset towards the LGBTQIA community, Young hopes for laws protecting members of the LGBTQIA community to already be passed.

“I know that there will be a better tomorrow, we just have to continue fighting for it,” Young said.
