IGLHRC was one of the driving force who supported LGBT activism in the Philippines, particularly in Manila during the time when most, if not all groups are young & still neophytes in doing LGBT rights work.
IGLHRC extended it's service by helping us campaign for the anti-discrimination bill legislative campaign and even provided technical support by providing a documentation training for LGBT activists.
