We support Women.
Women have always been the first to come as supporters and friends in any LGBT endeavor for equality in our homes and in the workplace. The Women’s Rights movement has also always been our inspiration too and model for working for the same rights for ourselves. Women are as capable and effective as men in any capacity in the workplace and beyond. As Filipino LGBT, we support and believe in #WOMEN.
We are grateful for the alliance with New Zealand Embassy – Manila, Philippines.
New Zealand LGBT Facts:
– the first country in the world to give women the right to vote in 1893.
– recently celebrated 30 years since same-sex sexual activity was decriminalized in 1986
– the first country in the world to have an openly transgender mayor, Georgina Beyer, in 1995. In 1999 she became the world’s first transgender member of Parliament, and remained in Parliament until her retirement in 2007.
