Marikina Mayor Marcy Teodoro, Vice Mayor Marion Andres, and members and supporters of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community on Tuesday turned the lights on at the Cityhood Park of Marikina in celebration of Pride Month.

“We are grateful to the LGBTQ community because they are giving our city color. We show that at the end of the day, we are all equally created,” Teodoro said.

The 12-meter symbolic monument at the center of the park lit up with the colors of the rainbow that represent the LGBTQ community and their contributions to society.

The Cityhood Park monument signifies the aspirations of Marikina City and the struggles and triumphs of the city’s forebears.

“It is a great honor to be here to launch the ceremonial lighting of LGBTQ colors. At the same time, we want to strengthen our institution with great support for everyone’s equality,” Teodoro said.

At the ceremony, Teodoro also ensured that there would always be a safe and equal space in Marikina for all gender orientation and preference.

He said he believed that LGBTQ community should have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, free from gender-related discrimination and violence.

The Metro Manila Pride March will be held on June 29, 2019, at the Marikina Sports Center from 12 p.m. onwards to bring together the LGBTQ community to march for equality.
