LGBT PARTY HAILS THE VICTORY OF MS. HEART DIÑO AND ALEX CASTRO




LADLAD Partylist hailed the election of Ms. Heart Diño as the first transgender Chairperson of the University Student Council (USC) in the University of the Philippines (UP) – Diliman.

Professor Danton Remoto, the newly installed Chairperson of Ladlad said the victory of Ms. Diño shows that the horizon of one’s dreams is infinite, whether one is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).

“The power to lead has been transferred to the capable hands of a transgender leader,” said Remoto. “We applaud this historic moment and congratulate her achievement,” he added.

The Party also lauds the election of Alex Castro, a bisexual woman, as the Vice Chairperson of the UP Diliman USC.

Ladlad hopes that this is the start of a new diversity that will emerge in mainstream politics. Remoto disclosed that the first nominee of Ladlad is a transgender woman.

“Our first nominee is Ms. Bemz Benedito. If we are lucky, it would be another milestone for the LGBT community if she becomes the first transgender Partylist Representative to be elected” Remoto said.

The political party for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Filipinos will run as partylist in the 2013 midterm elections.
