Kit Belmonte stands with the LGBT community after they got a taste of police arrogance on their special day.

June 27 was meant to be a day of celebrating Pride and protesting about gender discrimination, but it all went kaput when policemen hijacked plans for this year’s Pride March. Protesters who gathered were dispersed, while others were reportedly accosted by police who wanted no gatherings amid the pandemic.

“Karapatan ng bawat mamamayan ang malayang pagpapahayag at ang payapang pagkilos. Nakikiisa tayo sa LGBT community,” the politiko said, calling for the freedom of Pride March participants.
