UPLB Babaylan Participates in Manila Pride March 2010

by Sam Piamonte


In observance of the World AIDS Day, Task Force Pride again conducted its annual pride march, December 4 at Tomas Morato, Quezon City.


(Anti-LGBT individuals and groups express their reactions during the march.)


This year's theme is "One Love: Stop AIDS, Promote LGBT Human Rights, Keep the Promise" to keep unity among us. It also keeps the people including non-LGBT organizations and individuals aware of the harms caused by AIDS. Lastly, it acknowledges the role of the LGBT community in advocating HIV/AIDS awareness.


Participants of UPLB Babaylan were Jan Erick Alim, Leonel Estay, Joy Lorenzo, Cor MaraƱan, Keissy Orobia, Gelica Paz, Samuel Brando Piamonte, Vien Posadas, Angelo Salazar.


The march started at around 3 pm and routed the avenues Tomas Morato, Eugenio Lopez and Timog. A program followed right after in which the organization received a certificate of recognition.


Next year ulet!
