LGBTQ+ group commends Albano for being ‘Bes in Congress’

Apr 21, 2017 @ 11:46

An LGBTQ+ group on Facebook book hailed Isabela 1st District Representative Rodito Albano for being a leading “ally” of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Love WINS in Isabela Facebook page lauded Albano for being one of the co-authors of HB 4982 or “Act Prohibiting Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE)” in Congress.

The group called the Isabela politiko as its “Bes in the Congress” for his efforts to champion LGBTQ+ rights.

“It is reassuring and uplifting to know that we have allies in the halls of legislation who are for the same cause that we are despite not having the same experiences as we do,” the group said.

“The Bill itself may not have gone far yet, but it already is heartening enough to know that there are lawmakers talking and finally taking real actions where it should be in behalf of their people,” it added.
