Commune is a gem of a café in this lively part of Makati – tucked in the middle of Rockwell and the vicinity of Ayala Avenue. The café, which champions Philippine coffee, is famous for its three-dimensional lattes and its pair of resident cats. However, it also flies the rainbow flag – a message that in this space, where everyone and everything is welcome. It’s also a venue for talks and other events (such as improv shows). Sometimes, these concern the LGBTQ+ community, so it’s particularly busy and buzzing during Pride Month.

Mandaluyong City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

LoveYourself, as an advocacy group, is known for its HIV screening and care services, as well as education and prevention programs, but its centers are not only part of the battle against the epidemic, but the stigma, too. More than being healthcare facilities, its community centers want to do away with the intimidating atmosphere associated with clinics of its sort. In addition to HIV screening, LoveYourself – through its Lily and Victoria centers – has been providing services for transgender people. This includes hormone replacement therapy and counseling.
