Students hold placards during the UP Pride protest at the UP Diliman in Quezon City on Friday, October 29, 2021. They are pressing for the immediate passage of the SOGIE bill or Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Expression Equality Bill.
SOGIE is an abbreviation combining sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression that has become one of the main reference terms to describe the LGBT (or lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community.
It is now being introduced in many legal doctrines, in UN documents, and it is becoming popular in social media.
