Naomi Testifies At Philippine Congress Hearing
Was thrilled to hear she spoke at a December 5 (Philippine time) Philippine House of Representatives hearing as a resource person. It was for a Committee on Women and Gender Equality (CWGE) hearing on proposed national anti-discrimination measures. Multiple bills have been filed in the Philippine Congress to protect the human rights of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters in that nation
I'm exceedingly proud of Naomi, our transpinay and transpinoy sisters and brothers, and our allies there who have worked tirelessly for years to make this day happen.
Let's hope and pray the arc of the moral universe is bending toward justice and human rights for our trans cousins in the Philippines. Let's also hope that their testimony legislators heard opened hearts and minds, leads to legislative passage and heralds the beginning of a marvelous 2014 human rights wise for all of us around the world.
