HAPI- Bacolod chapter hopes to spearhead this year’s bigger pride parade dubbed as Over the Rainbow: Negros Pride 2022. The wrath of the COVID pandemic has halted the celebration of Pride Month in the past two years, with the ease of community restrictions, HAPI-Bacolod aims to a.)create a space where people from all walks of life can celebrate Pride Month b.)convene like-minded communities who are interested and passionate in lobbying for pro-LGBTQIA+ policies c.)raise awareness on the presence of the LGBTQIA+ community, their contribution to the society, and the issues they face by organizing this years Pride celebration in the province of Negros. Humanist Alliance Philippines International has been an active organization standing and fighting for equality and human rights, particularly LGBTQIA+ rights. This year, more than ever, it is very vital that the message of equality is indeed needed to be conveyed. The Over the Rainbow: Negros Pride 2022 is not just a commemoration or celebration of our presence and existence as LGBTQIA+ community, but also a call to continue fighting for our rights, to end hatred towards our community, the LGBT community, and to allow acceptance and love to fill the hearts of Filipinos. The chapter will hold the Pride march within Bacolod City on June 26, 2022. The Chapter aims the event to be a means to empower not just the LGBTQIA+ in Negros Island but also everyone who fights for equality; motivate the youth to be a voice for equal rights and educate everyone who may have/not participated in the importance of individual rights.
