Familiarity with the LGBT community in the Philippines as of 2016

Do you personally know someone who is attracted to people of the same sex or who identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual? (Philippines)

Familiarity with the LGBT community in the Philippines as of 2016 According to a survey conducted from December 2015 to January 2016, over 60 percent of the respondents do personally know someone who is attracted to people of the same sex or identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual. However, only 25 percent of the respondents stated that they would support the legalization of same- sex marriages.
LGBT rights in the Philippines

Despite their religiosity, the Philippines is one of the countries in Asia where public acceptance of homosexuals is high. In mid-2018, the local government of the city Mandaluyong even approved a right to protect the LGBT community from discrimination. The fact is that despite the acceptance in the Philippine society, many are still faced with discrimination. Especially students and as well people suffering from HIV. And yet it is unlikely that the state government will implement such a law at nation level too.

HIV in the Philippines

HIV infections are on the rise not only but as well in the Philippines. In 2017, the estimated number of people in the Philippines living with HIV amounted to almost 70 thousand. And yet the actual number could be much higher since the current data only shows the data collected in health centers. The number of unreported cases remains uncertain.
