MANILA, Philippines – Despite rains, the Marikina City Sports Center was filled with colors on Saturday, March 29, while thousands of members and allies of the LGBTQ + community marched in protest of anti-repression and discrimination.

With a theme #ResistTogether, Metro Manila Pride March emphasizes Pride as a protest, rooted in the 1962 Stonewell Disturbances – a series of anti-police demonstration demonstrations at the famous gay bar in New York.

According to the organizer of the event, Manila Pride in March 2019 had 70,000 participants – almost three times the number of participants in 2018.

"Now is the time to use our voices in the struggle for human rights – not just for our LGBTQIA + community, but for all the minorities who are facing injustice and oppression," Metro Manila Pride said on Facebook.
