The struggle to provide support, visibility, and to promote the rights of the LGBT+ community in the Philipines continues. One milestone, however, was taken in late August when the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philipines (CAAP) launched gender-neutral restrooms. 

In a statement, the CAAP said, “The Authority has appropriated 5% or Php 40 million for its Gender Awareness Development projects as authorized by the Republic Act 9710 or the Magna Carta for women and Executive Order 273…” This statement refers to the Philippine Plan for Gender-Responsiveness Development.
