Living History: 1992 as ‘turning point for lesbian activism’ in Phl

In 1992, a lesbian contingent, called Lesbian Collective, joined the International Women’s Day march. It was the first demonstration attended by an organized sector from the LGBTQIA community in the Philippines.

Power to the lesbians.

In 1992, what is considered “an important turning point for lesbian activism” (Mohideen, 1996) happened in the Philippines when a lesbian contingent, called Lesbian Collective, joined the International Women’s Day march in March of that year.

This made a mark in our history, as it was the first demonstration attended by an organized sector from the LGBTQIA community in the Philippines.
