Make Pride Happen

Pride needs your help

It won't happen without you.

Pride won't exist without the community.

This has always meant that the core of Pride is the community that gathers, celebrates, and protests together. But as our community at the Pride March and Festival grows to record-breaking numbers each year, this now also means that we need the community’s financial support to keep Pride going.

As our numbers grow, so does the cost to hold an event that is meaningful, fun, and secure for everyone. Even with the support of our host city, we still need to raise Php 530,110 for Pride to happen.

This will cover expenses for staging the program, food for our 300 volunteers (everyone from security personnel to performers), electricity, and other equipment and supplies that we need to run the event.
