Government sets LGBTQI activity in Zamboanga

THE local government’s Gender and Development (GAD) is set to spearhead a one-day activity for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) community.

Dubbed “Celebrating Pride, Equality, Colors, and Diversity,” the activity will be held on July 3 and will be spearheaded by the GAD and the LGBT Federation of Zamboanga City.

Commissioner Norman Baloro, Supervising Commissioner for Mindanao of the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor, will serve as special guest.

City Hall said Thursday that the activity is intended to promote and advance the rights and equal protection of members of the LGBTQI community. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
