Anyway, Trino and Adam were interviewed by Pink News recently, where Trino shared, “We met each other when we were in the closet.” Trino added that many people mistakenly assume they are “friends” rather than a couple because they don’t conform to the stereotype of what a same-sex couple looks like.

“We were always taboo because when you think of a gay man, this is not what you think.”

Meanwhile, Adam added: “The way that Chicano, our culture, sees us is that, they just feel that this is an act, and I feel like when they meet us… we like the same things they do, but we just love a little differently.”

Trino the netizens’ response to their photos is “beautiful.” He hopes “one day we don’t have to hide.” On the other hand, Adam said that with the online reaction, he received “so much love like I’ve never experienced in my life.”

Happy viewing!
