Here in the country, the LGBT community hasn’t been fully recognized by the public. Although there are several groups who support these people, there are still many who don’t encourage this kind of belief. Jake Zyrus has always been one of the most controversial members of LGBT in show business. Recently, he decided to undergo surgery to remove his breast. The 26-year-old artist is proud to show the result of his successful operation.
He recently uploaded his topless photo inside a gym where he works out. Jake also uploaded a shirtless photo as he had his vacation at the beach last summer.

“My boobs were gone. I couldn’t believe it. My eyes filled with tears over the realization that beneath the bandages was a flat chest—the chest that I had always wanted.” This is what he said on the opening passage in Chapter 1 (Awakening) of Jake Zyrus’ autobiography book “I Am Jake.”
He also decided to share his experience and how happy he was to fulfill his dream. “After years of living in a body that didn’t feel like mine, I felt a sense of ownership. I waited for five years to have my breast removed, and then there I finally was—groggy but fulfilled in the post-surgery,” he said.

But although he was totally happy with his life, his mother, Raquel Pempengco, still managed to throw criticisms against him. After a netizen commented on the singer’s Facebook post, Raquel decided to comment as well.
“Wag lang magkrus landas namin ni Charice dahil papakita ko sa kanya kung sino ang ina niya at sino rin siya,” she wrote.
Until now, Jake hasn’t visited his hospitalized grandmother, Tess Relucio. Recently, Raquel pleaded Jake to pay her a visit to help her recovery. She also tried to reach Jake’s manager but wasn’t able to get a response from him. Raquel also said that she’s totally mad at Jake’s action and wouldn’t be amused to see him.
“Sobra galit ko sa babaing yan,” she said.
