The LGBT community has a fighter in the Senate. 

Newbie senator Risa Hontiveros filed the anti-discrimination bill yesterday in the Senate, a bold step to protect LGBT welfare in the country. 

As an LGBT advocate, I am happy and hopeful that this bill, despite not the priority of this administration, will hopefully soon becomes a law. It is needed, especially now that rampant hate crimes concerning our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community are happening all around the world. 

I believe that gender and sexuality education should also be included as one of the measures. It is through education that we can deter this discriminatory practices. 

Thank you so much Sen. Risa for making the first step. We are at your back.
