PIA, TAU partner on SOGIE awareness

CAMILING, Tarlac ­— The Philippine Information Agency has joined hands with the Tarlac Agricultural University to raise awareness on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression.

The virtual event “Rainbow Youth Forum: Intensifying SOGIE Awareness” seeks to advocate for the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual, otherwise known as LGBTQIA+ community, who are facing discrimination in the society.

PIA assistant regional director Carlo Lorenzo Datu underscored the importance of the program in possessing an in-depth understanding of SOGIE.

“For the past years, different stories of judgment and unjustifiable opinions about LGBTQIA+ community have been very notable. We want to achieve equality no matter what the gender preference is because we all want to be loved, understood and accepted,” Datu said.

For her part, TAU College of Arts and Sciences Dean Maria Theresa Nardo recognized the timely exposure of students regarding the topic especially now that it is gaining space.
