MANILA, Philippines – After a long and inexplicable break, Rappler’s Who is the Filipino podcast is back, and what a return it is. In this episode, we talk to Mela Habijan about the LGBTQ+ community, why SOGIESC (sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics) matters, and the issues the LGBTQ+ community in the Philippines continues to face.
It’s timely – a week ago, trans woman Gretchen Diez was barred from using a public women’s restroom and almost faced unjust vexation charges (which were eventually dropped).
The incident sparked a huge conversation on LGBTQ+ rights (or the lack thereof) and SOGIESC in the Philippines.
What are the LGBTQ+ community’s struggles, what are these terms, and how do you go about learning (and unlearning)? – Rappler.com
