Pride Month Celebration at the British Embassy’s Reception

I joined the British Embassy’s Reception in celebration of Pride Month.?️‍? I enjoyed the engaging fireside chat with the LGBTQ+ community who talked about the community’s gains and achievements, as well as the barriers and discrimination they continue to face.

I have been pushing for the enactment of the Anti-Discrimination Act since the 17th Congress, now substituted as SOGIESC (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity or Expression, or Sex Characteristics) Equality Act. The proposed measure seeks to address the widespread and systemic discrimination that persist in the Philippines on the basis of SOGIE.

Spread love, not hate.?
