Pangulong Duterte, gustong magkaroon ng LGBT representative sa gobyerno

President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday said that he wants a representative from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community to be part of an urban poor commission.

Duterte last week fired officials of the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) over alleged unnecessary junkets and their failure to meet as a collegial body.

"Dito sa Pilipinas ngayon, bigyan niyo ko ng bright na tao, he might be gay, [she] might be lesbian. I would like to appoint somebody upon the nomination. You nominate the representative from the LGBT sector kasi I fired the entire commission of the urban poor, the head for traveling so much in so short a time as if he was using the money of the people like his own. So 'yang commission na 'yan bubuuin ko pa. I'd like a gay there somewhere or a lesbian," Duterte said in his speech during a gathering of LGBT community in Davao City.

Duterte gave the LGBT sector until the second week of January 2018 to nominate somebody. He said he wants to "highlight" the work of the members of the community.

"Magusap kayong lahat all over the Philippines, nominate somebody who is honest, hardworking and I would like to show that any... bakla man o tomboy can always work just like an ordinary human being," Duterte said.

"I give you until the second week of January to nominate... I'm sure you know. Just a matter of asking, just give me an honest... and bright gusto ko na representative para mahighlight ang trabaho ng isang bakla o tomboy," Duterte added.

In the same speech, Duterte also expressed support for same-sex marriage.

"I am for same-sex marriage. If that is the trend of the modern times, if that will add to your happiness, who am I? You know, kung ano yung kaligayan ng tao bakit mo pigilan? Why impose a morality that is no longer working? So I am with you," Duterte said.
