Mayor Santiago leads San Fernando’s pride month celebration

The San Fernando City Government joined SIWALA, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender organization, during the LGBT Walk of Pride held last Friday (June 16).

The LGBT Walk of Pride is just one of the many activities in San Fernando’s month-long celebration of LGBT month.

San Fernando City Mayor Edwin Santiago earlier said the celebration will highlight the LGBT’s call for openness and acceptance.

“We want to develop a community that values respect for all. Each member of the society, regardless of gender, has his or her own skills and unique talents which greatly contribute to the city’s prosperity,” Santiago said.

Other activities lined up include a tribute program dubbed “Handog ng LGBT sa mga Fernandino: Libreng Pagpapapogi at Film showing para sa mga Kalalakihan” on June 19 and a forum on Discrimination Amongst LGBT in the Workplace on June 23.

The celebration will be culminated by a cultural night on June 29.
