Transgender rights are human rights
Welcome to our website
It is without doubt that Philippine transgender community is in the right direction toward gender empowerment, equality and justice. The proliferation of transgender organizations in the country and the slow but steady progress of the awareness of the Filipino people about Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity rights is an indication of human rights progress in the country.
The realization of our goals should not be left to chances but should be proactively executed to shape the future of the next generation.
