While the likes of Texas minister Donnie Romero were celebrating the death of “perverts and pedophiles” in the Orlando massacre, Christian groups in Manila, Philippines joined forces with LGBT groups for the 22nd Metro Manila Pride last Saturday.

Marching under the banner of the National LGBT Organization Bahaghari, the groups called for an end to discrimination against LGBT people. Protesters also called for an end to labor practices that discriminate against contractual workers.
