CAPIZ STATE U CLARIFIES ‘HAIR POLICY’
THE CAPIZ State University clarified that it has no hair policy that bans students from entering its premises.
This came after a report by Radio Bandera said that some LGBTIA+ students were told that they need to tie their hair when inside the university.
The Iloilo Pride Team added that some students said they tried to enter the university and were advised to “dress up”.
The university said it contacted the group and explained that no such policy exists.
“Muli’t muling pinatunayan na sa sama-samang pagkilos at pagtutulungan, napapanalo natin ang ating mga karapatan. Mula sa balitang hindi papasukin ang ating mga estudyanteng mahahaba ang buhok, sa panahon ng kanilang mid-term exams, naabot natin ang balitang ito,” the group said.
“Sa tulong ng mga kasama natin sa [Bahaghari Rights Phl] at mga LGBT lawyers at mga kasama sa national level, naipaabot natin ang problema ng ating kapatid,” it added.
