Time to Move for the Gay Pride March 2013 in Manila

Manila Pride

It’s that time of the year when Filipinos put on their shoes or stilettos perhaps to celebrate the Lesbian and Gay community in Philippines and what better way to show it off with pride by presenting it on the streets of Remedios Circle in Manila. For sure it will be another fun event that highlights the freedom, diversity and creativity of the gay community in Philippines.

The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & Queer (LGBTQ) community says “the diversity is part of what makes us strong. On 7 December 2013, Saturday, as we walk the streets of Malate, we proudly celebrate the strength that the community has continuously shown in fighting for equal rights, as well as the strength that we have¬†shown as a nation in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Yolanda.”

Event Schedule:

Registration & Assembly: 1:00pm to 2:30pm (Remedios Circle)
Parade: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Program: 5:30pm to 7:00pm (Orosa – Nakpil, Malate)

Since the recent Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) happened in Philippines, a lot of locals and foreigners have been helping out in their own little way–whether by donating goods, money or building shelters. And so for the Gay Pride Walk, you may also bring donations for their very own Yolanda relief operations whether it is in cash or in kind.

Bringing Hygiene kits are also welcome as the people affected by the recent devastating typhoon will certainly need them. The donations will be received by Amnesty International representatives attending the even itself this weekend.
