The Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) is likely to get a representative from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. After revealing that he wants Efren Peñaflorida and Davao City's Randy Halasan to be part of the PCUP, President Rodrigo Duterte said Sunday, December 17, that he is looking for a "bright" and "honest" person to represent the LGBT community in the PCUP. "Kindly do it. I'll give you until second week of January," Duterte told a gathering of the LGBT community here in Davao City. "Give me a bright person. He might be gay, [she] might be a lesbian. I'd like to nominate somebody to be [a] representative of the LGBT sector," he said.
