The Birth of UPLB Babaylan
UP BABAYLAN is the leading gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) students' support group in all campuses of the State University which believes in the inherent equality of all persons regardless of status or condition. For the organization, this inherent equality implies that human beings should not be discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation.
The Organization's views on major issues confronting the nation, particularly as they affect the lives of Filipino lesbians and gays are heard and treated as the stand of the LGBT community of the University. It helps empower the latter by educating them on their rights as members of society, concomitantly teaching them how to effectively assert the exercise of these rights.
Watch out for our FABULOUS Launching Activities!
UPLB, Get Ready for SOMETHING PINK.
It was on July 6, 2009 when 41 individuals gathered at the Humanities Steps and marked the establishment of UPLB Babaylan, a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students' support group which believes in the inherent equality of all persons regardless of status or condition. For the organization, this inherent equality implies that human beings should not be discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation.
