One of the most anticipated events of the LGBTQ+ community each year is the Pride March, which is typically held in June. The event commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, which paved the way for modern LGBTQ+ social movements. In the Philippines, Pride has been held as early 1996 and it has steadily increased in popularity through the years. Last year saw the biggest crowd with 70,000 attendees, becoming the largest and oldest Pride demonstration in Southeast Asia.
