Manila mayor-elect Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso declares that he is pro gay. He proclaimed his support for gay rights during LGBT Pride Month.
“Kabilang sa mga hangarin ko sa ating mahal na lungsod kapag opisyal nang nag-umpisa ang aking termino ay ang pagkakaroon ng mas pantay-pantay na pagtrato (One of my goals for my beloved city is to have equality),” Domagoso said.
He went on to add: “Kung kaya ay asahan ninyo na magkakaroon tayo ng mga proyekto na magpapaigting ng respeto sa bawat Manileño (That’s why you should expect more projects that will bolster respect for every Manileño),”
The newly elected Mayor said he would never forget his promise during the campaign that he would organize a Pride March and Festival in Manila next year.
“Pagmamahal sa isa’t isa ang magpapanalo sa ating malayang diwa. Ngayong buwan ng Hunyo, ating itaas ang banderang bahaghari! You were born this way, baby! Happy Pride Month! #LoveWins ️ ,” he said.
