The Fight for Equality Continues: Support LGBTQ+ Rights at the UP Pride 2019

This UP Pride 2019, we carry on with our fight for equality.

With the theme “Embracing Diversity Towards Equality,” UP Pride 2019 aims to push forward the formulation and adoption of the UP SOGIESC Policy, a university system-wide policy on equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC). While there remains no national legislation recognizing and protecting the rights of persons with diverse SOGIESC, in UP, the time for equality is now.
