Based on USC election results, UP Diliman students are now considered by many as very mature voters. In a historic poll, two members of UP Babaylan won posts in the council –giving the LGBT students and non-LGBT ones hope that there is a great possibility for change in terms of the university’s political atmosphere.
There have been countless candidates from UP Babaylan in the past including one who ran for USC chairperson in the early 2000s when the group wore butterfly wings to promote their candidate. It was a bit sad that their candidate at the time did not win but things have changed and the UP community is embracing this change through the installation of the new USC Chairperson.
