To highlight the relevant role that transgender Filipinos (may) play in the Philippine society, the Transpinay of Antipolo Organization (TAO) is slated to have a feeding program – dubbed “Plates for You” – for young orphans on March 11.

With the support of local Antipolo politicians, as well as the families and friends of members of the group, “TAO has decided to do this activity because we see the need of (these) children who (are) undernourished – food may be one of the basic needs (to live, but they are deprived of this),” said Kristine Madrigal, vice chairperson of TAO.

The same effort is, nonetheless, an attempt to “impact young minds,” Madrigal said, by highlighting that “being a transpinay is not something to be (embarrassed about); and since we are part of the society, by doing this… we make the community aware of our existence.”

TAO is an Antipolo-based organization of transpinoys and transpinays, and their families and friends. It conducts seminars and symposia among its members, to empower them to be able to disseminate the information regarding TAO in their own communities; as well as to the general public, in order to introduce the transgender community.

Plates for You is happening at Sitio Kapatagan, Barangay San Jose, Antipolo City.
