The Task Force Pride, the official organizing network of the annual Manila Pride March, is inviting everyone to join the 2006 LGBT Pride March, which will take place in Manila City on December 9, 2006.

Assembly will begin at 3 PM at the Remedios Circle (click here for the route) and a post-parade program will be held in Rajah Sulayman Park. There will be an orientation for the participants on December 2, 2006 at the Order of St. Aelred office.

Please don’t forget to bring your umbrella. And lots of love, compassion and solidarity – Manila is Abante’s territory, so let’s show him what gay pride really means.

There is no Pride with these!!
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the No. 1 cause of the spread of AIDS in the U. S. (47 percent) is “MALE-TO-MALE SEXUAL CONTACT,”

AIDS Cases by Exposure Category
Exposure is the way of reporting HIV cases by how they were spread. It is described by transmission categories. Six common transmission categories are MALE-TO-MALE SEXUAL CONTACT, injection drug use, MALE-TO-MALE SEXUAL CONTACT and injection drug use, heterosexual (male-female) contact, mother-to-child (perinatal) transmission, and other (includes blood transfusions and unknown cause).
Following is the distribution of the estimated number of diagnoses of AIDS among adults and adolescents by exposure category. A breakdown by sex is provided where appropriate.
Exposure Category Estimated # of AIDS Cases, in 2004
Male Female Total
Injection Drug Use 5,968 3,184 9,152
Male-to-male sexual contact & injection drug use 1,920 – 1,920
Heterosexual contact 5,149 7,979 13,128
Other** 298 279 577

Spare the PHILIPPINES!!!

No pride with HIV? nothing to be ashamed of HIV. Persons living with HIV and AIDS are still humans, and they deserve to be respected and treated with dignity.

What’s shameful is propagating hatred and stigma. You should have joined us last Saturday: despite the rain, we had fun. we marched with pride and compassion, Hermie. Despite Abante, too, we discovered that the people of Manila City are accepting and warm. Join us next year, and you’d understand what I mean.

Section 15. (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Above is Section 15 of our Charter of Rights and Freedom (Canada), Constitution Act of l982, and under that provision passed an Anti-Hate Law under the Criminal Code, that make it is a Criminal offense to propagate Hatred against HIV/AIDS Sufferer. SEXUAL ORIENTATION was added as one of the among particular bases in addition to the categories already stated in the Charter.

And Pride Week is one of the biggest Celebrations, where Children and Olds and straight and all segments of society celebrate and join and get to know the cultures and the realities of life. And it is an official city and provincially sanctioned affair.

So my suggetion to all, Rights and Equality is for all, no less , no more.
