Filipino LGBT Youth Suicide Risks

Another relevant and informative topic will be presented by the Rainbow Rights Projects and the UP Film Institute. The 6th leg of Dyke Dialogues and Rainbow Exchange Series will be tackling about the study by Eric Manalastas from the Department of Psychology in UP Diliman.

The sympo-forum will be held at the Videotheque, 2nd floor Ishmael Bernal Gallery, UP Diliman on June 20, 2009.

I will be expecting to learn a lot from Mr. Manalastas. It was unfortunate that I wasn’t able to be his student back in college but I believe that I was able to ‘sit-in’ during one of his classes. 🙂

Families of the Heart: Legal Protections for Lesbian Partners and their Children

Rainbow Rights Project, Inc. and the UP Film Institute

Supported by


Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice
are inviting you to attend:


“Families of the Heart: Legal Protections for Lesbian Partners and their Children”
a lecture-forum to be held on
April 18, Saturday, from 1-4PM, at the Bernal Gallery, UP Film Institute.


By popular request, this discussion will try to provide answers for lesbian couples seeking joint property rights and other legal protections, after having been deprived of the automatic privileges granted by marriage. We shall also try to cover parenting options for lesbian families. Here is an article, by the way, which can help you know ways on how to get pregnant the lesbian way.

Know where you stand under Philippine law, and learn about your alternatives.
