“Trans and non-binary Filipinos exist. Our pre-colonial ancestors had spiritual leaders, the Babaylan (femme priestesses of any gender). They didn't follow colonial ideas of gender and gender roles and were highly respected in their communities. Today, they continue to challenge the status quo and fight for freedom. Knowing this history of our people makes me feel proud to be who I am” (Kiana Aquino).
