Natasha Dupeyrón is one of Mexico's great young talents having started her career as a child actress on telenovelas like "La Otra" and "De Pocas, Pocas Pulgas." As an adult she has been in hits like "Miss XV" and most recently on "Que Pobres Tan Ricos." Dupeyrón is very active on social media and shares her life moments with all of her followers. In recent days her fans started questioning her sexuality when she uploaded a photo on Instagram that showed her holding onto another woman's hand.

After all the comments asking if she was a lesbian she took to the same social network to clear the rumors up. "I am saddened to find out that I grew up in a judgemental society where holding a person's hand, depending on the sex, you are a lesbian," she wrote. "It is a society that judges based on an image or picture without knowing the details behind it. If I don't use makeup they say I'm sick, old or depressed, like if makeup defined someones mood or if it made you a better person."

Dupeyrón called for "maturity in society" and "end ignorance" in the message she posted. She also added: "There are millions of things much more important than if I am gay or not, that if I'm depressed or if the dark circles around my eyes make me look ugly. Let's stop consuming information from tabloid magazines full of real content. I am frustrated how we are consumed by gossip and lies when love is so close to us. This is me, without makeup, happy, in love, reaching my dreams, surrounded by valuable friends and a family with values that remind me that I am unique and that I can achieve anything, just like you."

 

 

Me entristece darme cuenta que crecí en una sociedad prejuiciosa y santurrona donde por tomar de la mano a una persona, según el género, eres o lesbiana o puta. En una sociedad que juzga una imagen o una foto sin saber qué hay detrás de ella o sin ni siquiera leer la nota al pie de la misma. Si no uso maquillaje aseguran que estoy enferma, demacrada o deprimida, como si el maquillaje definiera un estado de ánimo o te hiciera mejor persona. Paremos está ignorancia de una vez y maduremos como sociedad. Hay miles de cosas MUCHO más interesantes e importantes que si o soy o no gay, que si estoy o no deprimida o si mis ojeras me hacen ser fea. Paremos ya de consumir la información pendeja de las revistas amarillistas llenas de contenido carente de verdad y lleno de ego. Me frustra la impotencia de ver cómo nos consumimos en chismes y mentiras, cuando la libertad y el amor están tan cerca de nosotros. Esta soy yo, sin maquillaje, feliz, enamorada y cumpliendo mis sueños, rodeada de amigos valiosos y familia llena de valores que me recuerdan que soy única y que puedo lograr N cantidad de cosas, así como tú.
