Mayor Santiago fetes outstanding LGBT members
The San Fernando city government, in honor of Pride month, has recognized the outstanding members of city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
The “LGBT Model of Excellence” award aims to honor members of the LGBT community who excelled in different fields.
Among the awardees are event organizer Michael Munoz, international fashion designer Michelle Joie Ferraris, artist Peter De Vera, and recording and indie film artist Lorena Saivitri Villareal.
San Fernando City Mayor Edwin Santiago said he hopes to eradicate discrimination against the LGBT community through the awards.
“Dito sa syudad San Fernando, pantay pantay ang bawat isa. Sana sa pamamagitan ng mga aktibidad na ating inilunsad ay maipadama natin sa mga kapatid nating LGBT ang ating pagmamahal, suporta at higit sa lahat ang respeto sa kanila,” Santiago said.
