Here Are the Pride Events You Can Attend This June!

Pride Month is traditionally observed in June to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community around the world. Its history is rooted in the Stonewall Riots, a series of demonstrations held by members of the community to protest a police raid in New York. On June 28, 1969, a raid at the Stonewall Inn gay bar turned violent. This led to an important movement in the queer liberation movement.

Pride is a protest but it is also a celebration. Here are ways you can celebrate this June:

June 23: Pride March and Celebration (Nueva Ecija)

Venue: City Social Circle

This is the first-ever Pride event in San Jose City in Nueva Ecija. The march will be followed by a drag showdown at the Pag-asa Sports Complex.

June 23: SALIDA: A Queer Film Showing

Venue: Museo Dipolog

The film showing will screen three films that highlight the stories, identities, and experiences of LGBTQ+ Filipinos front and center: Nganong Dili?, Budjang, and Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros.
