Did you know that there are three pride parades happening in the Philippines tomorrow?

These are: (1) the 9th Baguio Pride Parade, (2) the 3rd Negros LGBT Pride Parade, and (3) the 2nd Quezon City Pride March.

Before it was moved back to June (when it was originally held), the Metro Manila Pride March was observed during December as well to coincide with Human Rights week. It’s amazing to see that the December Pride spirit is kept alive by these awesome LGBT Pride Parades! Read on to find out more about these events and why you shouldn’t miss any of them. Happy pride!
