METRO MANILA, Philippines – It has been 105 years since the world first started celebrating International Women’s Day and 27 years since the Philippine National Women’s Month was declared.

In this time, how much of the conversations about the social, economic, and political achievements and concerns of women have been about lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LBTQIA) women?

#Kakaibeh LBTQIA Women


In observance of National Women’s Month and International Women’s Day, we took to Twitter to talk about what it is like in the Philippines for LBTQIA women.

What does it mean to be a woman these days? What difficulties do LBTQIA Filipinas encounter? How can men be better allies to women? How can LBTQIA women be better allies to each other?
