Fiesta Filipino is honoured to become a chosen ally of the LGBTQ2IA+ in the FilipinX diaspora. We are honoured to embrace Bahaghari, an advocacy group creating community and safe space for FilipinX who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Asexual, and other identities.
We pledge to resist indifference and work to create accountable and brave spaces with equity, dignity and respect for everyone. We pledge to resist hatred of all forms against sexual orientation, gender, identity, age, race, class, and status. We acknowledge the crucial importance of expanding our awareness and understandings of discrimination in ways that honour all lived experiences.
Above all, we pledge to love freely and live our truths in courageous resistance against hatred of all forms in the name of all that Pride has meant to our very own LGBTQ2IA+ FilipinX communities.
This year, Fiesta Filipino proud to be part of the Pride Parade for the first time.
