The Pride Movement in Asia has been growing over the years and 2019 has been so far a particularly historic year for LGBTQ history. This year, Taiwan passed the first marriage equality act. It also marks the 25th anniversary of Asia’s first Pride march, which took place in Manila as a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The Filipino LGBT presence in Europe has also been very active. For the first time in history, a Filipino boat will participate in the annual Amsterdam Pride Parade. Thousands of people from all over the world are expected to join the festivities on August 3. The “Balangay” and Pride House Tokyo’s boat will be the first Asian boats in the canal event. During a panel discussion on LGBTQ Rights and Development in Asia on July 30, Filipino LGBT Europe chairman Chris Sta. Brigida said the organization had become a support group for Filipino LGBTs living in Europe. One of its projects is the “Out and Proud” media campaign which features stories of Filipino stories of overcoming their struggles with their gender identities.
