- Super Tekla once doubted his gender before confirming he is a man
- He said he has no spark with guys
- The comedian might’ve adapted his mannerisms from the comedy bar
Kapuso comedian Super Tekla revealed that he once doubted and challenged his sexual identity before confirming he is a genuine man; this, on Thursday, during the Inday Will Always Love You‘s press conference at the GMA Network.
GMA News quoted him saying, “Hindi, kasi lalaki talaga ako eh. Oo, totoo. 100% guy ako.”
[No, because I am a man. Yes, it’s true. I am a 100% guy.]
He said once a person is gay, his hands will crawl — to which he never did.
The comedian also said he has no spark with guys; revealing his experience of once having a relationship with another man that didn’t work out.
“Tiningnan ko kung ano.. Nagkaroon nga ako ng isang, ‘yong kasamahan ko sa work, parang MU-MU style. Sabi ko, ‘Saan ba talaga ‘yong ano ko?’ And then hindi nag-work.”
[I tried it. I once had a mutual understanding with a workmate (man). I asked, “where do I belong?” and it didn’t work.]
Thereafter, he tried having a relationship with a girl. He courted, got married, had girlfriends; making him conclude about his sexual preference.
He said nobody influenced him on why he acts effeminately but he might’ve adapted his mannerisms from comedy bars.
Tekla said he’s doing good with his ex-girlfriend with whom he has a child as they chat regarding their baby.
With his busy schedule as a celebrity, he always does his best to visit his family in Bacolod.
Super Tekla is a stand-up comedian in local bars who rose to stardom after being a co-host in the variety show Wowowin. He, later on, was bumped off the show due to an undisclosed cause.
Presently, he is a cast of the GMA Telebabad romantic comedy series Inday Will Always Love You.
