[From L to R: Nica (Co-host), Hender (Punong Babaylan), Athena (Executive Producer) and Harry (Co-Host)]
Last February 8 (Monday) 3PM, our current president Hender Gercio was featured as the guest speaker in the live radio program "Sabi Ko, Sabi Niya" that aired on DZUP 1602.
The theme of the show was about LGBT 101 and relating it to the Philippine scenario. Hender tackled LGBT terminology, media portrayal of LGBT people in the Philippines, and the continued struggle for equal rights of LGBT Filipinos.
DZUP is a radio station owned and operated by the University of the Philippines, Diliman. It broadcasts from the Media Center of the College of Mass Communication, UP Campus, in Quezon City. It is being used as a laboratory for the Broadcast Communication students of the university.
We hope that many (students and people from outside UP) were able to learn from the episode. Thank you DZUP for giving Pinoy LGBT youth the opportunity to reach out to a wider audience. Here's to the next media guesting!
