LGBT groups slam partylist for backing Sara Duterte 2022 bid, say Dutertes ‘no ally to us’


More than 40 LGBTQ+ organizations and individuals on Monday denounced a partylist claiming to represent their community after it issued a statement backing Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio’s potential Palace bid and hailed her father President Rodrigo Duterte’s policies it said “broke new grounds in the fight for equal rights.” Partylist LGBT Pilipinas is under fire over a September 1 press release throwing its “unflinching loyalty” and “all-out support” for Duterte-Carpio, who is rumored to be gunning to succeed her father in 2022.”Mayora Inday Sara is in the best position to move this nation forward and build on the gains that we have had since the advent of this administration,” LGBT Pilipinas said. But other LGBT groups refused to stand behind the partylist’s position.
