This Protocol addresses domestic and family violence against LGBTI people. Quezon City cares for our LGBTI community and we continuously strive for the equality and non- discrimination of the LGBTI people. In an effort to provide an enabling environment for our LGBTI community, the Office of the Vice Mayor (OVM} together with other stakeholders pushed for the enactment of the Quezon City Gender-Fair Ordinance where we penalize discrimination against LGBTI and we have provided affirmative acts to protect the rights of our LGBTI community. Recognizing the need to address the pervasive discrimination against LGBTI people, we worked for the creation and establishment of the Quezon City Protection Center for Victim-Survivors of Gender-Based Violence and Abuse, a facility that provides services to women, children, and LGBTI people.
