 What shout do you hear on the streets of Malate on a late afternoon in December? What else? Diversity and Freedom!

This year's Pride March tagged Project Equality as their goal for next year. Aiming a higher level of acceptance from the society, the different social groups participating in this year's event joined together in shouting feats for love and diversity!

Though this year's event may not be as fun and organized as the previous marches in the past years, this was still a venue for a reunion of the many gay and lesbian groups who have been shouting in the street and fighting againsts discrimination and prejudice.



Let's start off with the juices, queens and queers! See the Raging Divas in the jeepney-carried float.


One Fairy Queen shwishing her hair in front of rallying Christian Fundamentalists shouting Bible passages to Pride participants.




The streets packed with duchesses in their own costumes and styles.


The upcoming divas with their men on a float. Too bad their masks covered most of their features!


Dancing queers on masks…


Rallying men and womyn crying equality this year! What a shout!

And most of all, two hearts shouting freedom, equal rights, acceptance and diversity!


Long live Pride!!!
