Presidential hopeful and Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas has pledged support to efforts protecting and upholding the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LBGT) community in the country.

In fact, Roxas is even supportive of a bill prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender currently pending in Congress, according to his wife Korina Sanchez.

The outgoing DILG chief was among the politikos who recently attended the “#Keribeks: The First National Gay Congress of the Philippines” in Quezon City. The event was partly organized by his wife.

“People are asking, ‘Does Mar support the LGBT?”: I think Mar’s attendance in the event, as he himself said in an interview, means he supports my advocacies. He told me, ‘It’s a good thing. We have LGBT in our own family, don’t we?’ To others he has said, ‘It was a load of fun and enlightening about what they go through,’” Korina said.

On the bill against gender discrimination, Korina wrote: “Certainly, Mar will carefully study this bill and, needless to say, he supports every human right.”
