Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Pilipinx?
While the term Filipino/a is traditionally used to depict this population, the planning committee felt the need to be culturally appropriate as there is no "F" in the alphabet. ​The "x" replaces the "o/a" to beinclusive of those with unique gender identities.

How do I become eligible for a prize from attending PAHM?
Attend and/or participate in three or more PAHM activities during the conference by receiving stamps or signatures from the events' presenters and/or PAHM volunteers. Turn in your point card (only given at the conference) at the registration table or a PAHM volunteer.
