Congress Champions Band Together for Anti-Discrimination Law

Wazzup Pilipinas!

House Bill #51 was filed by Dinagat Islands Lone District Rep. Kaka Bag-ao in the House of Representatives. A senate version was filed yesterday by Senator Risa Hontiveros.

The said bill, penalizing discrimination against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, was first filed by Akbayan Rep. Etta Rosales sixteen years ago. Although supported largely by human rights and LGBT groups, the bill remained at a standstill in the lower house during the past congresses.

The meeting this morning was attended by old and new champions: L-R: An Waray Rep. Binky Noel, Batanes Rep. Dina Abad, Pangasinan 4th District Rep. Toff De Venecia, Bataan 1st District Rep. Geraldine Roman, Dinagat Islands Rep. Kaka Bag-ao, and Senator Risa Hontiveros.

"We will win Anti-Discrimination Law in the 17th Congress", committed Hontiveros.
