Who created TransPH.org?
TransPH.org is a project of Transman Equality and Awareness Movement (TEAM), an organization based in Cebu. TEAM was created to serve the trans men of Cebu as “national” groups failed to reach out beyond, what is being criticized as, Imperial Manila.
What does TEAM do?
TEAM is mainly functioning as a support group for transgender men. We share information such as names of trans-friendly doctors and safe sex practices. We educate our members and teach them SOGIE, clear misconceptions about trans individuals, etc. We meet on a monthly basis.
We teach SOGIE, Trans101, LGBT Rights, and Gender Equality to different groups.
We’ve had mini projects such as this website. We regularly share trans news through our facebook page, and maintain a YouTube channel. We conducted a school climate survey in 2016. The results of the survey can be found here. We are the only group that commemorates the loss of trans lives in the Visayas every Transgender Day of Remembrance since 2015.
We’ve been part of several projects by other groups such as Cebu Plus’ photo campaign for transgender men, UNDP’s Being LGBT in Asia Programme’s Legal Gender Recognition Roundtable Discussion, etc.
