The 23rd Metro Manila Pride March was held at Marikina City last Saturday, June 23, 2017. Being the longest-running LGBTQ+ festival in Asia, it continues to be a safe space for people of all genders in the country.
This year’s theme is #HereTogether, which served as a call for the allies of the LGBTQ+ community-friends, family, co-workers — to come out and show their support for equality. The official convener of the festival, Metro Manila Pride, estimated that there were 7,718 attendees this year — a larger crowd compared to the 4,000+ people who joined last year’s march.
