The LGBTQIA community of Dipolog City is marking June as Pride month with a series of events that aim to “educate, unite, and celebrate the LGBTQIA community of Zamboanga del Norte,” according to Dipag Rainbow Collective, an organization based in Dipolog City.

The entire month of June is internationally marked as “Pride Month” to commemorate the StoneWall uprising that happened in New York City in 1969, when – after years of discrimination – members of the LGBTQIA community literally fought back against State forces. This is largely considered to have sparked the modern LGBTQIA rights movement.

Today, stressed Dipag Rainbow Collective, “the struggle of the LGBTQIA community is focused on combating severe stigma, discrimination, exclusion, and repression.”

For this month, Dipag Rainbow Collective lined up activities that “celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the LGBTQIA community”.

June 04 – Photo Contest: The LGBTs of Dipolog, Saturday
June 13 – Launching of LGBT HOTLINE for SOGIE-based Legal Concerns, Monday
June 24 – SOGIE Webinar (for LGBT and non LGBT organizations), Friday
June 30 – Announcement the winners of the “The LGBTs of Dipolog”, Thursday
