LGBTQ ally! Honey Lacuna joins Manila Summer Pride
Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna showed her support for the LGBTQ+ community by celebrating diversity in the Manila Summer Pride event held on April 3.
In a Facebook post, Lacuna said Manila is a bastion of gender diversity, as shown by the legislation of City Ordinance 8695 protecting the rights of the LGBT+ community.
“Naniniwala ako bilang isang Ina na kahit sino ka pa, kahit ano ka pa, may puwang ka sa mundo, may silbi ka sa mundo. Basta’t ang pananaw natin sa buhay ay wala tayong tinatapakan, wala tayong pinagsasamantalahan, may paggalang tayo sa karapatan ng bawat isa at may pananagutan tayo sa malayang pamumuhay,” she said.
Lacuna said equality does not mean looking at all things with the same view, but acceptance of different opinions.
Joining Lacuna at the event was her running mate, Manila Rep. Yul Servo, Councilor JTV Villanueva and Liga ng mga Barangay President Lei Lacuna.
