UP Lantern Parade


from http://angupbabaylan.blogspot.com


RED is the color of RAGE

We, the UP Babaylan, now parade in RED.

Pula na kulay ng dugong nananalaytay sa ugat ng bawat tao. Ito rin ang kulay ng dugong naghihimagsik sa galit dahil sa panghuhusga ng COMELEC sa aming mga bakla, lesbyana, bisexual at transgender.

Red is love that knows no color, no sex, no creed. Ours is a brave kind of love. No amount of persecution can stop our hearts from loving. Our love is not different. It is the same love that binds us and makes us understand.

Red is the spirit of Christmas. The spirit that celebrates the noblest of love.

Wear Red and be Red. We will never be silenced.

Rage against the homophobia and total disrespect to human rights.
