‘Pink Ink’ held for student leaders in Metro Manila, Bulacan

Outrage Magazine and Rainbow Rights Project Inc. held a seminar/workshop dubbed Pink Ink that gathered select student leaders in Metro Manila and Bulacan. Joining the gathering were Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, and Baliuag University in Baliuag, Bulacan.

As part of the effort to further spread information about the plight of LGBT people in the Philippines and the steps that can be done about LGBT-related issues, Outrage Magazine and Rainbow Rights Project Inc. (R-Rights) held a seminar/workshop dubbed Pink Ink that gathered select student leaders in Metro Manila and Bulacan.

Joining the gathering were Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, and Baliuag University in Baliuag, Bulacan.

According to Michael David dela Cruz Tan, publishing editor of Outrage Magazine, it is “actually inspiring seeing many young leaders take on LGBT issues particularly in their respective educational institutions. But (mainstream) LGBT activists and advocates shouldn’t just leave it at that; instead, we should do all we can to provide the support needed to make sure that the young get the support they need as they continue pushing for equal rights for all.”

During the gathering, Tan discussed how the LGBT situation in educational institutions, and how media deals with LGBT people and issues; Atty. Jazz Tamayo, executive director of R-Rights discussed SOGIE 101; and John Ryan Mendoza, managing editor of Outrage Magazine, discussed HIV 101.

Outrage Magazine first launched the Pink Ink in 2012 to help make journalism as practiced in the Philippines more sensitive to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. As part of Pink Ink, trainings are provided: 1) in educational institutions (including student journalists, student leaders and journalism students) for them to start reporting on LGBT-related issues; and 2) to professional media practitioners for them to be more LGBT-sensitive in their media coverage.

This run of the Pink Ink was conducted with the US Embassy in Manila.
