Manila Gay Pride March 2012

MAKATI, PHILIPPINES – DECEMBER 08: Revelers participate in the Manila Gay Pride March on December 8, 2012 in Makati, Philippines. Although frowned upon by the mainstream Catholic church, Filipino LGBTs are slowly gaining ground as a vibrant and vocal movement as they prepare to field their very own political party in next year’s midterm elections for the first time. The Ang Ladlad party (Coming Out party) is set to become Asia’s very first lesbian gay bisexual transexual political party. (Photo by Dondi Tawatao/Getty Images)
