Transgender payagan sa unang bagon ng tren

By: - 07/12/2019

NAIS ni Bagong Henerasyon Rep. Bernadette Herrera-Dy na payagang sumakay sa unang bagon ng tren na para lamang sa mga babae, senior citizens, persons with disabilities ang mga transgender woman.

“Letting the transgender ride on the reserved coaches is a proactive way to prevent future incidents of sexual harassment of the transgender with members of their former gender. There have been such incidents in the past,” ani Herrera-Dy.

Umaasa si Herrera-Dy na pagbibigyan ng Department of Transportation ang kanyang panukala.

“I know Transportation Secretary Art Tugade to be respectful of the rights and convenience of passengers. I am confident he and his experts in DOTR can come up with the needed administrative order to the MRT, LRT, and PNR,” dagdag pa ng solon.

Isa si Herrera-Dy sa nagsusulong ng gender equality sa Kamara de Representantes at may akda ng Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity or Expression Equality bill.

May panukala rin siya para magkaroon ng Civil Partnership mode sa ilalim ng batas upang maging pantay ang karapatan ng mga kasal na lalaki at babae at magkatulad na kasarian na nagsasama.
