Outrage Magazine discusses SOGIE, HIV with UMC youth leaders

Outrage Magazine led the discussions on SOGIE at the national gathering of the leaders from the United Methodist Youth Fellowship of the United Methodist Church in the Philippines. The gathering also discussed HIV 101. “For the youth, particularly those of faith, to understand us, we first have to provide them information about our community, and the issues affecting us,” said John Ryan Mendoza, managing editor of Outrage Magazine, and who is also with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP).

Outrage Magazine led the discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (SOGIE) at the national gathering of the leaders from the United Methodist Youth Fellowship of the United Methodist Church in the Philippines.

Participated by youth leaders from all over the Philippines, the gathering attempted to help people of faith better understand, thus better deal with LGBT people. As such, as noted Michael David dela Cruz Tan, publishing editor of Outrage Magazine, “it’s a good venue to reach to those who many think we may not necessarily be good partners with.”

“To make people know of us, we should be willing to open up to them. Part of this is to be willing to impart our knowledge to them,” Tan said.

The gathering also discussed HIV 101, helmed by John Ryan N. Mendoza, managing editor of Outrage Magazine, and who is also with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP).

“For the youth, particularly those of faith, to understand us, we first have to provide them information about our community, and the issues affecting us,” Mendoza said.

The talk formed part of pinkink.

It was also supported by #HateWatchPH.
