Never be afraid of showing who you really are, Cong Leni Alonte says on Pride Month

Jun 8, 2021 @ 13:02

Congresswoman Len Alonte-Naguiat urged the Filipinos to “celebrate individuality and freedom in all forms” this Pride Month as she expresses admiration for the courage of LGBTQ+ community.

In a Facebook post, the Biñan City Representative said she admires the courage of LGBTQ+ folks to stand for equality and diversity.

“Never be afraid of showing who you really are because you are beautiful and you are loved. Let us celebrate individuality and freedom in all forms,” the Politiko said.

The annual Pride Month celebrations around the world stemmed from the 1969 Stonewall Riots, the series of protests against the police repression of a popular gay bar in New York City, United States. LGBTQIA+ communities worldwide have since marked June with events to champion for their rights.
