Spreading the word about issues LGBTI families face in the Philippines has just become a lot cuter.
Youth organization, YouthLead, has created Ang Aming Pamilya (Our Family). It’s a new web series tackling some of the situations LGBTI families face.
YouthLead recognized it was sometimes difficult to raise awareness of LGBTI issues in the Philippines. So, it came up with the animated web series.
Based on real stories of LGBTI people in the Philippines, each episode tackles a different topic.
The first episode follows Tina, who is working up the courage to come out to her son Miko. In the second episode viewers follow Wilbur and trans woman Sabrina who are trying to adopt a baby, which is not an easy process in the Philippines.
The third episode tells the story of gay couple trying to have a baby through surrogacy and working their way through the IVF process. We follow Shane and Allan as they build their relationship with Ramona, who is unsure about helping the men. But she changes her mind after her brother, Wilbur, tries to adopt a baby with Sabrina.
Ang Aming Pamilya not only works to raise awareness of LGBTI families, but also provides resources for people who need to access services.
