Pride to re-visit Lucena City on December 9.

The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community of Lucena in the Quezon Province will again reconvene for its second LGBT Pride gathering following a hiatus.

Last 2014, the first LGBT Pride was held in Enverga University; it was the first such gathering in Quezon Province, helmed by EU Bahaghari, and supported by other organizations at Enverga University in Lucena City, including Alpha Phi Omega – Chi Chapter, STAND Enverga, Envergans Ayaw Sa Tofi Alliance, and Guni-Guri Collective.

The first Pride called for the equal treatment of LGBT people, recognition of their rights, and protection within the educational institutions; even as it also called for focus on other issues faced by students, including hikes in tuiton and other fees.

In 2015, a Pride event was not held, though the community gathered for the #EqualityWithoutBorders cultural night, which called for the need to continue the LGBT struggle.

This December 9, the #2ndQuezonPride will happen a day before the International Human Rights Day on December 10.

EU Bahaghari is the only LGBT student support group in Manuel S. Enverga University Foundation in Lucena City.
