Here is a letter from Danton Remoto, Chairman of Ang Ladlad, the national organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Filipinos. Frankly, I am probably one of the least politically-savvy gay guys you will find. However since I know some of you feel this is important, and also as my form of support to kindred souls, I am giving way to this message — this is especially being sent to overseas Filipino gays, an appeal for support to Ang Ladlad’s goal of seating gay representatives in Congress. If this is your cup of tea, please read on.
Letter from Danton
Dear Friends Overseas,
I am asking you to help Ang Ladlad in its projects and possible electoral campaign to gain three seats in Congress in May 2007. We are seen as a strong party that just might seat three LGBT people in Congress. But we need funds, especially when the political campaign begins on February 13, 2007. Specifically, we need funds for the following major expenses:
1. Airfare and transportation expenses of candidates to the major cities in the country;
2. T-shirts, tarpaulins, streamers, buttons, and other publicity materials;
3. Production of brochures, flyers, handbills, and posters; and
4. Office expenses.
Therefore, I am making an appeal to our Fil-American, Fil-Canadian, and Filipinos based overseas to help us raise funds. You may contact Doni Santos at [email protected] for details on how to send us your financial donations. The US $100 I am asking each of you to send us will be a big boost in our campaign.
This is now our chance to prove our worth, show our strength, walk the talk.
Let us bring ANG LADLAD to CONGRESS! Mabuhay po tayong lahat!
