Transgender candidate in the Philippines

Geraldine Roman of Bataan may become the first transgender representative in the Philippine Congress.

She has been a transgender since the 1990's and has an impressive resume.  She speaks 3 European languages, worked in a Spanish News Agency and has 2 masters degree.  Also being part of a political dynasty in her province helped her a lot.

If elected in office, she will push for the passage of the Anti-Discrimination Bill that has languished in Congress for the past 16 years.

To Ms. Geraldine Roman, we in the LGBT community wish you the best!
