Test your knowledge on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression

 

 

Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) is something of an on-again off-again hot topic in the Philippines. Granted that the SOGIE Equality Bill remains in limbo 21 years on, it’s become easy to see what’s been getting in the way of such a crucial piece of legislation. A lot about SOGIE still gets lost in translation—misunderstood by some policymakers themselves, no less. Seemingly no-brainer concepts can prove tricky to explain. Not to mention, the SOGIE glossary alone can be intimidating.

 

But the beauty of SOGIE is that it’s personal: for everyone to learn about and get an awareness of. And in getting to know oneself better, there’s no right or wrong or aspects set in stone. Big picture: the basic understanding of SOGIE not only lays down the foundation for gender sensitivity and gender etiquette, but paves the way for inclusivity, too. So here’s to checking in on that grasp on the SOGIE basics. Take the SOGIE quiz ahead to test your knowledge on the fundamentals.
