Join Queer and Trans activists from the Philippines along with SFCHRP on Wednesday, June 8th at 7pm, as we discuss the boiling hot political situation in the Philippines, how queer/trans activists are at the forefront of a movement fighting for national liberation in the midst of dictatorship, and the complexities of being queer and trans organizing for, not only their lives, but for everyone in their homeland. Learn how we, as concerned people in the US can contribute towards their struggle for a just and lasting peace.
