The government of Quezon City conducted a commitment ceremony for 222 LGBTQIA couples days before this year’s Valentine’s Day.

According to Mayor Joy Belmonte, who served as the officiant of the ceremony, Quezon City continues to support the rights of its LGBTQIA constituents through the QC Gender Fair Ordinance, the local government unit’s anti-discrimination ordinance that protects the rights of LGBTQIA people at least in the city.

“Love has no limits. Love is universal. Love wins, always,” stated Belmonte via a Facebook post.

The event is, nonetheless, only ceremonial, since the country still doesn’t have marriage equality.
