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.
