QC Mayor Herbert Bautista Orders List Of LGBT Government Employees

It seems they're all required to join the 'Quezon City Transgender Employees and Gay Association.'

"Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista has asked for a list of local government employees who identify themselves as part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, in line with a plan to form an association that would cater to their rights and needs," reports Jhesset O. Enano in Philippine Daily Inquirer.


In a memo dated August 22, Bautista indicated that September 15 is the deadline "for all heads of offices, departments, and units under the city government to submit a list of LGBT employees." He explained that the information would be used "for the registration, profiling, and inclusion for the Quezon City Transgender Employees and Gay Association."

The memo also further justified the registration requirement by citing the QC Gender-Fair Ordinance.

Netizens, however, have pointed out that the mandatory registration is actually discriminatory to the LGBT community.
