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 to different groups as requested. So far, we’ve done it for trans women, MSMs, bisexual men, and lesbians.
We’ve had mini projects such as this website. We regularly share trans news through our facebook page. We also maintained a YouTube channel for a short while. We’re also getting ready to start violence monitoring where the victims are transgender men. Someone has to, right?
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.
