LGBTs must come together to fight for equality, says Roman

Apr 16, 2018 @ 15:16

Bataan 1st District Geraldine Roman said bigotry can happen even to people with a privileged background.

The transgender politiko said she is indeed lucky her parents accepted her for who she is.

“I recognize that I come from a privileged situation where I have parents who love me, who have supported me and have accepted me for who I am. Because of their hard work and personal sacrifices, I was able to receive the best kind of education,” said Roman.

But outside the family, Roman was still discriminated for being part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.

“Yet, I still suffered from discrimination. To bigots, it does not matter where you come from or what your background is. As long as you are a member of the LGBT community, you are deemed unworthy of respect to them,” said Roman.

To the LGBTs, the congresswoman said: “This is why we as a community must #WorkTogether and fight back against hate and bigotry.”

“At the end of the day, all we have is each other,” she added.
