Butuan City is slated to hold its 3rd LGBTQI Pride parade on August 3, with the emphasis in this year’s gathering the “inclusion of LGBTQI allies in the fight for LGBTQI human rights,” according to Ysang Semacio Bacasmas, who helms organizer Ladlad Caraga Inc.

Butuan City is a 1st class highly-urbanized city and regional center of the Caraga Region in the Philippines.

In a statement released to Outrage Magazine, Bacasmas said that this year’s gathering will be more “extensive and inclusive”. Particularly, while the stereotypical parading of LGBTQI locals wearing loud costumes will still be there, this is the first time that “(we really reached out to our) allies for them to join the event.”

The first Pride-related event happened din Butuan in 2013; though – after the second one in 2013 – no other similar event has been held there.

The event will start at Butuan’s Gaisano Mall, and will traverse JC Aquino Ave. to Guingona Park. Other events lined up include a youth leadership training, and a “solidarity night”.

For more information, contact (+63) 910 0830 561, or email ladladcaraga@gmail.com.
