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.
