This has been a busy week for PinoyFTM!
We have also been very privileged to have taken part in the Advocacy Forum and Community Consultation on the Anti-Discrimination Bill 2.0 that was organized by TLF Share, with the support of the ISEAN-Hivos Program and the Office of Senator Bam Aquino, which was held last September 25 at the Philippine Senate.
PinoyFTM is proud to throw it’s full support behind the passage of the Anti Discrimination Bill and pledges to do whatever we can as an organization to help it come to fruition.
Next, and perhaps my favourite engagement, was the Community Consultation for the Anti-Discrimination Bill.
In our country, the ADB has long LONG been overdue. It was first drafted in 1998 and until now has yet to be passed.
While it’s not just a bill for the LGBT community, the LGBT community is actively collaborating with the bill’s champions to make sure it’s as inclusive as possible.
Trans groups pretty much dominated the conversation, and I think I made myself look particularly ‘activist’ with all the input I was giving. :))
There was a team from the local news there too and asked me for an interview but I think I bombed it so bad since I was rushing to get back in the room when discussion resumed that I doubt they’d use my footage. :))
