STRAP salutes Baguio Pride


The Society of Transsexual Women of the Philippines (STRAP) is honored to declare its solidarity with the Baguio Pride Network (BPN) as it holds the 4th Baguio Pride Parade. We salute all the organizers, supporters and participants of this milestone event as it signifies the commitment to human rights advocacy of Transgender Lesbian Bisexual and Gay (TLBG) activists in the Northern Luzon region.

From Baguio to Manila to Cebu to Davao, the Filipino TLBG community stands on the cusp of history with the imminent inauguration of the 15th President of our beloved Republic. May we take our Pride events this June as an opportunity to recommit to building a strong, united and empowered movement that will work in securing civil rights protections for TLBG Filipinos and eradicate discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Indeed let us continue to educate people and liberate them from the bonds of bigotry. In doing so, let us never forget to celebrate ourselves and each other and the diversity of our community. STRAP stands proudly with all those who make up BPN in their quest for equality, acceptance, empowerment and dignity.

Agbiag ti Baguio Pride Network! Agbiag ti Baguio Pride Parade!
