In Lapu-Lapu, one of Metro Cebu’s three highly urbanized cities, an ordinance eyeing to protect the human rights of LGBTQIA people was unanimously approved by the Lapu-Lapu City Council.

The anti-discrimination ordinance – which now heads to the table of the city’s mayor, Junard “Ahong” Quirante Chan – was authored by councilors Annabeth Cuizon and Joergen Eyas-Book.

The ordinance was floated a year ago, but was submitted only in July.

The other mega cities of the province have already passed their versions of the anti-discrimination ordinance (ADO). Cebu City, for instance, passed its ADO on August 18, 2022, while Mandaue City passed the city’s LGBT Code on February 11, 2016.
