Last night's incident involving a transgender woman being prohibited from using the womans washroom and resulting in being escorted off premises in handcuffs by local police only highlights further, the Philippines need for implementation of the #SOGIEEqualityBill LGBTQ+ rights are HUMAN rights - mga karapatang pangkaligtasan at kalayaan mula sa diskriminasyon, karahasan at pagmamalupit batay sa pagkakakilanlan. The incident happened in a city that has an existing anti-discrimination bill. Ibig sabihin, walang saysay ang isang bill na hindi maipatupad sa isang komunidad. Kasabay ng hinihinging pagpasa ng #SOGIEEQUALITYBILL , dapat din tayong humiling ng mga sumusunod bilang isang komunidad: 1. "Accessible forms of information for the public such as educational drives, programs and awareness campaigns": para mas maintindihan natin ang mga pangangailangan ng LGBTQ+ community at para malaman natin ang mga bagay na maaari pa nating magawa bilang mga kaalyado o mga taong may awa sa kapwa ❤. 2. "A SOGIE workplace policy": para sa lahat ng mga pampublikong tagapaglingkod at mga taong may impluwensiya sa komunidad. Gusto ko ring pagtuunan natin ng pansin ang katotohanang wala dapat makaranas ng anumang uri ng pagpapahiya at pang-aabuso (emotional, physical o sexual ), LGBTQ+ man o hindi. The whole arguement of shifting the blame to the victim for reasons of being trans to justify abuse - is still victim blaming and IS NOT RIGHT. The blame should be on the perpetrators who should be held accountable and corrective actions should be taken (in last nights case - points one and two above could greatly help prevent future similar incidents from happening ). Ang LGBTQ + ay nakikipaglaban para sa kanilang mga karapatan - ang karapatan sa kaligtasan, proteksyon at pagkakapantay-pantay - ay laban din natin. 🏳🌈 #SOGIEEqualityNow
So excited to be part of the Cream Silk family! 😍 I am really grateful to work with a brand that shows Filipinas that they are conditioned for greater things. 🇵🇭 Can’t wait for you guys to try New Cream Silk Hydra Fresh! With Hydracollagen Technology, it’s water-based, easy rinse & non-greasy so expect it to be intensely hydrating yet unbelievably light! #IntenseButLight 💧 @creamsilkph

Leaving all the negativity and running into the new week like ⚡⚡⚡. #KeepCalmAndLavaWalk 🔥 Wishing you all an amazing start to the week!!! I'm right there with you warriors!
It's been a really challenging last couple of weeks, I've felt really low in my spirit. I just wanted to write this post to share that low moments happen to all of us. When I find myself feeling down and overwhelmed; where things are out of my control, it helps to remind myself that the only person I can control is myself, to count all the things I have to be grateful for and to plan and look forward to the dawn of a new day. 🌤 so if you're feeling down in the dumps, you're never alone. Situations and life are tough...but so are you. #KeepCalmAndLavaWalk 🔥🌋
