Philippine LGBT Political Party List Group “Ang Ladlad” participates in Electionsfor the First Time

"Ang Ladlad," an LGBT party-list group will participate in the May 2010 Philippine elections. This is the first time that Ang Ladlad or any LGBT political party was allowed to participate in the elections in the conservative and only majority-Christian country in Asia. Ang Ladlad was finally allowed to be included in the ballot after years of struggle against the local hierarchy of the Roman Catholic church and orther conservative sectors.
