The local LGBT community slammed a local resort over alleged discrimination in its Facebook post announcing a ban on transgender people. The management of Isla Reta Beach Resort issued the ban in a brief statement on Facebook on May 12, arguing that it has no facilities to accommodate transgender individuals’ demands. “We inform to the public (sic) we cannot accommodate transgender because we have no facility for them to avoid issues of discrimination,” it said. In the comments section, Filipinos criticized the management and pointed out that not allowing transgender people from their premises is already a form of discrimination. “Isn’t not allowing our transgender brothers and sisters a blatant form of discriminatory practice? Please review this policy,” one user said.
