According to Manalastas (2013, p. 3) “lesbian, gay and bisexual populations have been found to have a number of disparities in mental health outcomes.” According to David (2014, para. 26) “develop the concept “purple-collar labor” to describe how transgender workers—specifically trans women—are clustered, dispersed, and segregated in the workplace and how their patterned locations in social organizational structures serve a particular value-producing function. “ Ponce (2012, para. 1) stated that “theorizes and enacts a queer diasporic reading practice that attends to the complex crossings of race and nation with gender and sexuality.” Sinnott (2010) noted that “one of the most significant themes in the literature is the exploration of sexuality and gender as a form of identity, practice, and cultural discourse that has emerged in the context of the transnational movement of concepts, bodies, and imagery” (para. 1). David (2012) stated that "In a Third World setting such as the Philippines, this gets played out mainly as an unfortunate alliance between queerness and a relatively privileged social standing. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Filipinos continue to experience stigma, prejudice and discrimination in Philippine society. This stigmais manifested in actions such as: bullying, teasing and harassment of LGBT children and adolescents in families, schools and communities; media portrayal of LGBTsas frivolous, untrustworthy and even dangerous or predatory; denying transgender Filipinos entry into commercial establishments; pigeonholing LGBT Filipinos into particularly limited roles and occupations; or curtailing their rights to participatein the political sphere. (Manalastas, 2011, para. 1, p. 229).
