More people participated in and attended this year’s Metro Manila Pride March and Festival compared to last year, according to figures from the Marikina City police.

As of 6:30 p.m., there were nearly 50,000 people gathered at the Marikina Sports Complex, Marikina police chief Col. Restituto Arcangel said.

In 2018, there were only about 25,000 participants.

During the event, Marikina Mayor Marcelino “Marcy” Teodoro signed an anti-discrimination ordinance after delivering a speech before the LGBTQIA (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders, Queers, Intersex, Asexuals, and plus) community.

City Ordinance 065-2019, or the Anti-Discrimination Ordinance of Marikina City, was passed to provide equal rights and opportunities to all members of the LGBTQIA .

Teodoro called on other government officials, and local governments to stand for equality, saying it was high time to take a stand and fight for the right of every citizen.

He also told members of the LGBTQIA to fight for their rights.

“Carry on this fight, and never waver. You are the ones giving strength to this movement. Do not be afraid to share your stories, be visible. Be out and proud,” Teodoro said.
