Angeles partners with LGBTQ+ community for livelihood program
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. thanked members of the LGBTQ+ community for helping the city government provide alternative livelihood programs for its residents.
The city government is collaborating with the LGBTQ+ community for a livelihood and skills training program.
“This project of the LGBTQ+ community is a big help for our constituents, especially those whose livelihoods have been affected due to the pandemic,” Lazatin said.
LGBTQ+ Community Head Jhune Angeles said the group is planning to initially conduct dressmaking skills training program in the city’s 33 barangays.
“We have already coordinated with the barangay captains of all the 33 barangays in the city. We will start with our kababayans who want to learn about sewing and dressmaking,” the civic leader said in a Philippine Information Agency report.
“This is a big thing for our fellow Angeleños to be able to start their livelihood even if they are only within their own homes. Let us [LGBTQ+ member] work together to help more,” Angeles said.
