LGBT group calls for SOGIE Bill passage

Members of LGBT group Bahaghari raise placards after holding a press conference on Wednesday calling for the passage of the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity or Expression (SOGIE) Equality Bill. The group launched their information campaign called #AchibDisBill2020 which aims to educate people and gather support for the measure. President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said he would certify the SOGIE Equality Bill as urgent but his spokesperson Salvador Panelo later said the president meant a different anti-discrimination bill.
