Pride March Volunteers

The Pride March this December is looking for volunteers to celebrate our choices, our loves and our very being as members of the queer community.

Here's their invitation:

"The Participation Committee for this year’s Manila Pride Season and Pride March, lead and organized by Task Force Pride (TFP) Philippines, is inviting more volunteers and members to be part of the Committee. One of, if not the, main project and target of the said committee is to expand the annual Pride March participants from an annual mean of 500 (probably less) persons to a 300% increase and a 2,000 happy and rainbow bunch of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities–lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, heterosexuals, asexuals, pansexuals, queers, intersexed, non-identifiers etc–and most of all living, loving, and human rights- and equal rights-believing individuals. The Participation Committee has even gone farther by identifying 2,000 as the base number and targetting more than that number. If that happens, this year’s march will not only be the 10th year anniversary celebration of Task Force Pride but would also be the biggest and most diversely participated Pride March in Philippine history."

Let's be proud of who we are.

500 PARTICIPANTS in one of the most densely populated cities of the world to celebrate Pridefest?...i've been to a few pride celebrations around the world and can fondly remember the sea of human queer in such an important event. it defies logic why such a low attendance in Manila, considering it is a free event...i'm desperately seeking an answer. WHY?
