Jennifer Laude, a transwoman, was killed by a US marine in Olongapo, Philippines on October 11. It's a tragedy that has galvanized the LGBT community in the Philippines to demand respect. It has also been an opportunity for progressive groups in the Philippines who have been critical of the Visiting Forces Agreement to again remind everyone of the US military presence as a threat to the Philippines' sovereignty.
