- The Senate conducted a hearing to discuss the SOGIE bill
- However, Sen. Nancy Binay suggested to make the discussion on discrimination more universal
- She also recommended to just include the SOGIE bill in the Anti-Discrimination bill
The Senate has recently conducted a hearing for the SOGIE bill that aims to protect the LGBTQ+ community.
KAMI learned that for Senator Nancy Binay, the discussion to prevent discrimination should be “more universal.”
In a report by the Inquirer (author Maila Ager), Binay suggested that instead of passing the proposed measure, it should be incorporated in the Anti-Discrimination bill.
“I mean for example ako, I’ve been discriminated (because) of my color. Does that mean that I need to file a bill to protect people like me?” Binay said.
“So sana ‘yung discussion natin when it comes to discrimination should be more universal, should be more encompassing,” she added.
