Watch: Manila Metro Pride 2017

Organisers say around 5,000 people attend gay pride march in Manila’s Marikina City on Saturday.

Fifteen colourful floats joined 5,000 rainbow-flag waving and placard carrying supporters of LGBT rights for the Manila Metro Pride 2017 on Saturday.

The 23rd Metro Manila Pride took the theme "Here Together," a call for the community and its allies to create a safe space for LGBT.

Senator Risa Hontiveros delivered a speech and the march and said “the issues we fought decades ago are still being fought for today. The President's macho politics have failed the LGBT community.”
