This transwoman’s story tugs Roman’s heart
Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman definitely has a soft spot for other transgendere like her.
The politiko shared a fellow lawmaker had shown her a letter from a transwoman studying hotel and restaurant management.
“She could not complete the course because the different restaurants and hotels in her area would not allow her to undergo OJT (on the job training! as a woman,” said Roman.
“I was struck as I read her letter as I felt the injustice being committed against her, she added.
Roman then said this is the reason why the anti-discrimination bill must be pased by the 17th Congress.
Support namin ‘yan, Miss G!
Several months ago, a colleague of mine in Congress showed me a letter from a transwoman studying HRM. She could not complete the course because the different restaurants and hotels in her area would not allow her to undergo OJT as a woman. I was struck as I read her letter as I felt the injustice being committed against her. This is the reason why we must pass the SOGIE Equality bill in Congress. I am determined to work for its passage.
