Ang LadLad: A Call for Help

Its a brand new year, there is a mist of a brand new hope for all of us especially for the LGBT community here in the country.
Here is a letter from Danton Remoto, Chairman of Ang Ladlad, the national organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Filipinos. This is especially being sent to overseas Filipino gays, an appeal for support to Ang Ladlad’s goal of seating gay representatives in Congress. If this is your cup of tea, please read on.
Letter from Danton

Dear Friends Overseas,

I am asking you to help Ang Ladlad in its projects and possible electoral campaign to gain three seats in Congress in May 2007. We are seen as a strong party that just might seat three LGBT people in Congress. But we need funds, especially when the political campaign begins on February 13, 2007. Specifically, we need funds for the following major expenses:

1. Airfare and transportation expenses of candidates to the major cities in the country;

2. T-shirts, tarpaulins, streamers, buttons, and other publicity materials;

3. Production of brochures, flyers, handbills, and posters; and

4. Office expenses.

Therefore, I am making an appeal to our Fil-American, Fil-Canadian, and Filipinos based overseas to help us raise funds. You may contact Doni Santos at donisantos.angladlad@gmail.com for details on how to send us your financial donations. The US $100 I am asking each of you to send us will be a big boost in our campaign.

This is now our chance to prove our worth, show our strength, walk the talk.

Let us bring ANG LADLAD to CONGRESS! Mabuhay po tayong lahat!


Cheers,

Danton
