“We do not have a grand celebration for the Independence Day this year due to the restrictions still in place in the Netherlands, but through community relief efforts, we hope to give hope and happiness to Filipinos who were affected by the crisis,” Chris Sta. Brigida, chairman of Filipino LGBT Europe said.
Happy PRIDE po sa ating lahat!
