Group Description

LADLAD is the political party of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Filipinos. Our members are either LGBT organizations or individuals, and/or our heterosexual supporters.

It is the first political party composed of LGBT Filipinos that will claim— and reclaim— the rights we have lost from centuries of homophobia and discrimination.



MISSION

1. To protect and promote human rights and access to justice of LGBTs.

2. To raise awareness and sensitize Philippine society about LGBT issues and concerns.

3. To address health issues and concerns of LGBTs.

4. To initiate economic and social support projects for LGBTs, especially those marginalized.



SOCIETAL VISION

A society free from gender and sexuality-based oppression, prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping.



ORGANIZATIONAL VISION

Ladlad LGBT Partylist is an inclusive, sustainable, and responsive national LGBT organization that endeavors to consolidate, empower, strengthen and represent the LGBT community.

LADLAD is running for party-list elections for Congress in the May 2013 elections. Thus, it is bound to make history.
