Nadine Lustre sure is aware of social issues. After speaking up about mental health last year, the actress is now supporting another cause: LGBTQ+ rights.

Lustre was one of the people who supported the community by marching at Metro Manila Pride.

The actress was not the only celebrity who participated in the march. She was joined by actresses Iza Calzado and Janine Gutierrez, photographer BJ Pascual, models Angie and Mead King, and Mari Jasmine, director Samantha Lee, singer Donnalyn Bartolome, radio DJ Sam YG, and Binibining Pilipinas queens Patch Magtanong and Resham Saeed.

This year’s Pride March is themed Resist Together, an homage to the Stonewall riots in New York in 1969. The riots began during repeated raids on the Stonewall Inn, sparking the gay liberation movement in the US and the world.

The Metro Manila Pride March is the oldest pride march in Southeast Asia. It began in 1994 and allowed members of the LGBT+ community and its allies to celebrate their gender identity and expression while fighting for social issues. This year’s march was held yesterday at the Marikina Sports Center. It broke another record with a whopping 70,000 attendees.
