With the implementation of the Anti-Discrimination Ordinance here, the students of various schools were reminded on the provisions of said ordinance during a symposium conducted by the Ladlad Caraga, Incorporated, a non-government organization that promotes the rights and welfare of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) community. According to Isagani Bacasmas, Jr., chairperson and chief executive officer of Ladlad Caraga, the youth or the students are vulnerable and have been prone to discrimination and bullying especially inside the school. He said there were times where these students are not prioritized in several opportunities as they are being discriminated by other people. “We are conducting this symposium because we want to educate the students in all schools about the anti-discrimination ordinance, as we observed that there have been students who were bullied and discriminated by their peers,” said Bacasmas.
