Stressing his administration’s support for the LGBTQIA community, City of Manila’s mayor, Francisco Moreno Domagoso, revealed the re-painted pedestrian lane in front of Plaza Rajah Sulayman, leading to Manila Bay.

In a Facebook post, Domagoso said that the rainbow-colored pedestrian – flanked on both sides by the logo of the paint company – symbolizes the support of the city for every constituent, including members of the LGBTQIA community.

Beyond the pedestrian – and more importantly – in October, the City of Manila finally gained an anti-discrimination ordinance (ADO) to protect the human rights of LGBTQI Filipinos. Domagoso signed City Ordinance 8695, sponsored by councilor Joel Villanueva, which prohibits “any and all forms of discrimination on the basis of SOGIE”.
