The transgender daughter of Anakalusugan party-list Rep. Mike Defensor assured the LGBT community that her father would fight for their rights should he win as Quezon City’s mayor in 2022.

“At sino pa ba ang makaka-intindi sa mga LGBT kundi ang LGBT at ang may mga anak na LGBT di ba?” said Mel Defensor, who accompanied her father in one of his talks with the members of the LGBT community.

Mel said that her father and his team have been fighting for the rights of the LGBT community not only during election period.

Defensor is one of the authors of the SOGIE bill or the measure prohibiting discrimination on the basis of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity or Expression.

Castelo has authored a similar measure during his stint at the House of Representatives.
