Making It Work: Lesbian, bisexual and transgender women’s economic empowerment in the Philippines

Women’s economic empowerment is critical for the achievement of women’s human and economic rights and gender justice and is embedded in the related targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to which the Philippines is a signatory. Yet lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LBT) women in the Philippines have remained invisible to policymakers due to a lack of focused attention on their voices, priorities and needs, exemplified by an absence of official statistics, disaggregated by sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression (SOGIE).
