Being LGBT in ASIA

STORIES OF BEING ME: Friends and allies, let us all commemorate this year's International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia by attending this screening of several short films that deal with the lives, issues and challenges of LGBT people across Asia. We hope to see you all at the UP Film Center tomorrow 16 May (Friday) 5:30PM. This fabulous rainbow event is free and open to the public, so bring your friends and share this message to as many people as you can. Kitakits!

B/Proud featuring Perci Cendaña of UP Babaylan

Featured in this Pride Month special from Bench/ ( is our very own alumnus, former Punong Babaylan (AY 1994-95), the very first openly gay USC Chair, and now National Youth Commissioner Perci Cendaña.

Also featured in the special are our friends at the Ateneo Dollhouse and Alex Castro from the Proud to be LGBT Campaign.

Happy Pride!


"You can’t deny the strength in numbers—strength necessary for a war that’s surprisingly still fought today. When Philippine church and state think homosexuality can be suppressed and many Filipinos consider it a joke, it helps to present a reality that’s clear, vivid, and as solid as the number 100.

The B/PROUD campaign was born from this need to overpower narrow-mindedness and empower the fearful and restrained. B/BLOG gathered 100 LGBT folk across Manila’s ambitious new crop of establishments to show queer society out, about, and standing dignified with a rising city."

UP BABAYLAN joins the rest of the world in celebrating the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia today, 17th of May. On this day in particular, we encourage everyone to increase awareness, add to the discourse, and campaign for the acceptance of our family, friends and colleagues, whatever their orientation or gender identity/expression. It is our sincerest hope that today -- and every day forward -- everyone freely enjoys the human experience of loving and living, without the shadow of fear or stigma.

Today let's celebrate love in its infinite permutations. Let's celebrate life in every color of the rainbow.
