Community Organizing


Since its inception, Babaylanes has helped in establishing LGBTQI student organizations all over the country. This has been the organization’s original mandate which was to replicate the “Babaylan experience” — alluding to our student organizing root through the pioneering LGBTQI student organization, UP Babaylan. Babaylanes then facilitates a safe and learning environment through the annual LGBTQI Students Advocate for Rights and Inclusion (SARI) Network Conference formerly known as “LGBTQI Students Network Conference” wherein emerging student organizations gather to consolidate action plans for the year.
