Mandaue City probes club alleged transgender discrimination

Investigation Underway for Potential Bias Incident

The local government of Mandaue City has launched an investigation into a club accused of discriminating against a transgender woman. Reports have surfaced that the club denied access to the transwoman unless she agreed to purchase a VIP table. VIP tables offer patrons a reserved space and personal service, but come at a premium compared to standard entry.

City Treasurer Speaks Out

Regal Oliva, the Treasurer of Mandaue City, revealed in a statement on Friday, February 23, 2024, that the city plans to issue a show-cause order (SCO) to the club in question. This legal document requires the accused party to present their defense and justify why the court should not proceed with a particular action against them. The move underscores the city’s commitment to addressing and rectifying allegations of unfair treatment based on gender identity.
