Philippines: Supreme Court Grants Accreditation to LGBT Political Party

"The denial of Ang Ladlad’s registration on purely moral grounds amounts more to a statement of dislike and disapproval of homosexuals, rather than a tool to further any substantial public interest."
– Mariano C. Del Castillo, Associate Justice, Republic of the Philippines Supreme Court in Ang Ladlad LGBT Party v. Commission on Elections

On April 8, 2010, the Philippine Supreme Court granted accreditation to Ang Ladlad, a political party of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Filipinos and their supporters, to run as a party list candidate in the election for Congress on May 10, 2010.
