National LGBTQI Students Network
Babaylanes has been providing organizing and advocacy training to several LGBTQI student organizations across the Philippines since its formation in 2008. Every year, we organize the National LGBTQI Students Network Conference where representatives from these organizations are given further trainings and an opportunity to learn from each other. In June 2021, the first National LGBTQI Students Network Assembly was held which was an online assembly for the members of the network.
Some of the notable organizations from the National LGBTQI Students Network are:
