UP Babaylan continues the fight for equality with UP Pride 2019! With the theme "Embracing Diversity Towards Equality," UP Pride 2019 pushed forward the formulation and adoption of the UP SOGIESC Policy, university system-wide policy on equality and non-discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC). While our country remains to have no national legislation recognizing and protecting the rights of persons with diverse SOGIES, in UP, the time for equality is now.
That's why we joined them in the official UP Pride 2019 events last September 10-13, 2019. From their very own Pride Exhibit to a free HIV screening, this series of activities prove that the battle for gender justice and human rights will not be over as long as discrimination and violence against the LGBTQI community persist and equality remains elusive. Swipe through our gallery to see how our diversity unites us for the greater fight for equality and human rights! #UPTowardsEquality #SOGIEEqualityNOW
