Philippine congress is holding an online vote to gauge the attitudes of Filipinos towards same sex marriage. While not binding this is a great opportunity to send a message to our leadership that gay love IS real love.
Bills approving same sex marriage or civil have been presented in congress several times over the past two decades but none have been successful. Perhaps with Taiwan now approving same sex marriage the Philippines may finally see the light of equality.
There is currently a petition in the Supreme Court to overturn the current ban on same sex marriage however Associate Justice Francis Jardeleza said he was “more inclined” to dismiss the petition.
