“Love knows no gender… At the end of the day, love wins,” declared 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival best supporting actress Aiko Melendez when asked what the audience can learn from watching her film, the Joel Lamangan gay-themed drama “Rainbow’s Sunset.”
At the 2018 MMFF Gabi ng Parangal, AIko dedicated her award to kids Andre Yllana and Marthena Jickain, as well as to boyfriend, Subic mayor Jay Khonghun.
“Tinanong ko nga s’ya, ‘Baby, paano ba maging Mayor?'” Aiko shared with reporters. “Sila kasi ni (Davao City) mayor Sarah Duterte ang peg ko.”
“Rainbow’s Sunset,” which also features Eddie Garcia, Gloria Romero and Tony Mabesa, will run in cinemas until Jan. 7.
