Metro Manila Pride holds ‘Hubad: Katawan’ to tackle LGBT sexuality

According to Nicky Castillo, one of the heads of MMP, Hubad was a chance to create LGBT visibility. “We’re trying to find a way to create even more pockets of visibility and safe spaces outside the Pride March.”

Metro Manila Pride (MMP), the LGBT Pride events organizer in Metro Manila formerly known as Task Force Pride, hosted an event dubbed as “Hubad: Katawan”, which aimed to raise funds for this year’s Pride march on June 24, while also shedding light on issues regarding LGBT sexuality, as well as creating a safe space for LGBT Filipinos through art.

As the second collaboration of MMP with Words Anonymous, the event saw LGBT people perform a la “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler, UCR Coming Out Monologues and “HUBAD: Mga Kwento ng Kalayaan” by the Lesbian Activism Project (LeAP) Inc.

According to Nicky Castillo, one of the heads of MMP, Hubad was a chance to create LGBT visibility.

“We’re trying to find a way to create even more pockets of visibility and safe spaces outside the Pride March. Once a year lang ang Pride March, and it’s not fair that we only get once a year to celebrate safe spaces and diversity. So that’s we are trying to do to – to create spaces on a grand scale,” Castillo said.
