Take your rainbow flag out and come join this year's Metro Manila Pride! Happening at the Marikina Sports Center on June 29, the Pride March and Festival—with the theme #ResistTogether—will up the ante this 2019!
All day, there will be various solidarity speeches, discussions and workshops from LGBTQIA+ groups and individuals. In the afternoon, #ResistTogether will transform into a festival with various performances from drag artists Lady Gagita and Sky Teotico; dance and theater groups such as The House of Mizrahi, TFX, and the Care Divas; and spoken word artists Alfonso Manalastas and Juan Miguel Severo.
At night, enjoy music from Oh! Flamingo, Pinopela, Matthew Chang, and Zsaris before DJ Katie Kace of EuroPride Vienna 2019 and Filipino circuit DJ Deej Diaz close the night with a dance party!
But more than the fun and games, let's not forget that the Metro Manila Pride is a protest—a call against injustice and oppression—and a celebration of the progressive inclusion and acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community and other minorities. So if you are one of/with them, come march with us!
