Pronounced pee-lee-peen-ex, Pilipinx represents the people who are native to or identify with the Philippines as part of their ethnic and/or cultural identity. Pilipinx is our ERG’s preferred spelling of Filipino or Filipina, because the letter F did not exist in the native script of the Philippines (known as baybayin), and Pilipinx is the gender-neutral alternative to Pilipino, Pilipina or even Pilipin@.
