Platform[edit]
The organization's thrust is toward human rights, and the organization is fighting for equal rights
among all Filipinos, whether they are LGBT or not.[citation needed]

Controversies[edit]
The Commission on Elections denied Ladlad's petition to be allowed to run in the 2010 elections, on
the grounds of "immorality",[2] However, on January 12, 2010, the Supreme Court granted
a temporary restraining order, thereby allowing Ladlad to participate in the 2010 elections.[3] In
the 2007 elections, Ladlad was previously disqualified for failing to prove they had nationwide
membership.[4]
On April 8, 2010, the Supreme Court formally allowed Ladlad to join the elections. The party
received 113,187 votes or 0.37% (excluding votes from Lanao del Sur), below the optional 2%
threshold and was not able to win a seat in Congress.
In the 2013 elections, the party also failed to reach the minimum two percent of votes cast barring
the party from running in the 2016 elections.[5] The party can enter elections in 2019 instead.

Low Popularity Dilemma[edit]


The party's low popularity due to the country's opposing influential Catholic figures is seen as the
major walls in Ladlad's congressional bid.
Modernization has lessened the percentage of Filipinos tracking traditional Catholic teachings and
more LGBT Filipinos are coming out of the closet as noted by local surveys and as seen in the huge
influx of LGBT Filipinos in nationwide Pride Marches, notably the Metro Manila Pride March.[6]

Programs and platforms[edit]


Ladlad has the following platforms:[1]

1. Re-filing of the Anti-Discrimination Bill that gives LGBT Filipinos


equal opportunities in employment and equal treatment in
schools, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, entertainment centers,
and government offices.
2. Re-filing of the bill to repeal the Anti-Vagrancy Law that some
unscrupulous policemen use to extort bribes from gay men
without ID cards;
3. Setting up of micro-finance and livelihood projects for poor and
handicapped LGBT Filipinos;
4. Setting up of centers for Golden Gays, or old and abandoned
LGBTs, as well as young ones driven out of their homes. The
centers will also offer legal aid and counseling, as well as
information about LGBT issues, HIV-AIDS, and reproductive
health. These centers will be set up initially in the key
cities/metropolitan areas of the Philippines -- Baguio, National
Capital Region, Cebu and Davao.
Same-sex marriage is not yet part of the party's platform.[7]
