LGBTQ community protests Makati's ‘Oplan X-Men’

The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) is investigating “Oplan X-Men,” the Makati police’s alleged profiling of transgender women, to save them from “exploitation and human trafficking.”

CHR spokesperson Jacqueline de Guia said they were alerted to the intensified operation by a video showing Makati lawmen picking a transwoman at random and asking her to come with them to the police station.

According to De Guia, while the CHR recognizes incidents in which the police may “invite” individuals to their headquarters, the public should exercise caution, as these may be used to effect warrantless arrests.

“This recent incident further highlights the violence and harassment experienced every day by the LGBTQI community because of their sexual orientation and gender identity,” she said.
