If You Support LGBT Rights, Then MARCH!
This Saturday, December 7, 2013, is this year's annual Metro Manila Pride March. Despite some confusing cancellations, the Pride March is still pushing through, and this is definitely a good thing.
Tobie and I will definitely be marching again this year given how important this one activity is. Beyond any internal politics or differences in opinion, the Pride March has always represented the importance of the LGBT struggle for equal rights in the country. And we still have a long way to go.
So once again, this is a call to friends and like-minded citizens who believe in the LGBT cause. Whether you're straight or gay or somewhere in-between, the Pride March is open to everyone who wants equal rights for the LGBT community. The Pride March is a way to truly show support for your LGBT friends. And you definitely don't need to be LGBT to participate.
And I sincerely hope to see more of my straight friends join us on Saturday. It would mean so much to Tobie and me if you'd take some time out to show support. It's the least you folks could do. ;-)
See you all on Saturday!
