Manila Pride March 2010

Task Force Pride 2010 presents One Love





Good day everyone, Task Force Pride will be moving the 2010 LGBT Pride March to Tomas Morato in Quezon City on December 4, 2010. The decision came after the QC Mayor's Office and Social Hygiene Clinic expressed interest to support the LGBT community's annual celebration.

The 2010 LGBT Pride March will be observed in the light of HIV AIDS World Awareness Day. The theme "One Love: Stop AIDS, Promote LGBT Human Rights, Keep the Promise" acknowledges the LGBT Community's proactive role in advocating HIV AIDS awareness.

The Manila Pride March gathers LGBT groups and individuals once a year to promote solidarity within and outside the community. It creates a safe space where LGBTs and their supporters can raise pressing issues. By tradition, Manila Pride March coincides with Human Rights week, to affirm the specific rights claims of the LGBT community.

This year’s theme, “One Love”, pushes for unity. The diversity of the LGBT community is apparent, but this diversity comes at the price of political differences as well. However, this year’s March encourages everyone to view those differences as celebratory instead of damaging; that those differences are merely proof of the community’s dynamism. “One Love” also looks at how it is still possible to see points of convergence and collaboration despite differences.

The schedule for December 4 will be as follows:

2:00 pm - registration
3:00 pm - formation
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm - Pride March
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm - HIV AIDS awareness and Diversity Advocacy
9:00 pm onwards - Solidarity and Pride celebration
