LGBTQ+ couples tied the knot in a mass wedding ceremony last February 14 at the Lights of Love Events Palace in Quezon City. “LOVE IS PRIDE. PRIDE IS LOVE.” is the slogan of the mass wedding that was officiated by Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, who is a known supporter of LGBTQ+ rights.
Liza Diño, the chairperson of Film Development Council of the Philippines, served as the ninang of the wedding ceremony, while her singer-songwriter husband Ice Seguerra who is also LGBTQ+, performed the wedding singer of the night, serenading the event with romantic songs.
We welcome and congratulate Quezon City Government and Mayor Joy Belmonte in doing this symbolic yet historic secular-civil wedding ceremony for LGBT+ couples.This shows a powerful message of recognition of LGBT lives and families, and a symbolic step forward towards a just and inclusive society.
