06/05/2018 | Human Rights Watch

The Philippine city of Mandaluyong has approved an ordinance to protect the rights of LGBTI people from discrimination, the latest in a slew of local laws passed across the country. Mandaluyong’s anti-discrimination ordinance “prohibits such discriminatory acts as denying or limiting employment-related access; denying access to public programs or services; refusing admission, expelling or dismissing a person from educational institutions due to their SOGIE (sexual orientation, gender identity and expression).” It also prohibits “verbal or written abuse; unjust detention/involuntary confinement; denying access to facilities; and illegalizing formation of groups that incite SOGIE-related discrimination.”
