This year’s UP Pride Week Theme is "Educate to End the Hate". As a student organization, we recognize the relevance of education to our advocacy of promoting LGBT Rights as Human Rights.

Education is key to addressing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). Through education, we can make society understand why Gender Equality is of utmost importance, especially in an academic setting such as the University of the Philippines – the State University of the Philippines. UP Babaylan, together with more than 30 LGBT organizations, ally organizations, student formations, and student councils from various universities will come together on June 28, 2012 at the Biggest Student-led Pride March in the Philippines – THE 2012 UP PRIDE MARCH.
