In an effort to reduce discrimination and stereotyping on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, the LoveYourself, Inc., together with its partner organizations, invites everyone to join its fun-filled and liberating activities in celebration of the Pride Month this June dubbed as LoveYourself Pride Carnivale 2015.

 

Happening on 20 June 2015 (Saturday) at Quezon City Memorial Circle, LoveYourself Pride Carnivale 2015 is a two-part fundraising event to promote self-awareness and expression, equality, unity, and health education within the LGBT community.

 

A Worthy Cause

LoveYourself Pride Carnivale 2015 kicks off with Rainbow Race, which involves challenges affirming the LGBT pride, and increases awareness about issues of discrimination, and sexually transmitted infections such as HIV/AIDS. For more details and how to register for the Rainbow Race, just visit www.loveyourself.ph/RainbowRace before its registration closes on 18 June 2015 (Thursday).

 

Apart from LoveYourself, other beneficiaries of this fund-raising activity are the Project Red Ribbon (TRR), and the Sustained Health Initiatives in the Philippines (SHIP) Foundation.

 

TRR advocates for HIV and AIDS prevention composed of both persons living with HIV and advocacy supporters; while SHIP participates in the national intervention on HIV prevention (including focus to injecting drug users), treatment, care and support through working with existing groups and organizations to provide alternative solutions for the same cause.

 

Alongside the race are “Pride booths” by community-based organizations (CBO) and civil service organizations (CSO) showcasing goods for sale to raise funds for their respective organization, while also advocating for greater awareness among LGBT community, families and friends on HIV prevention, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression.

 

In June 2014, LoveYourself launched its first the Pride Carnivale in Mandaluyong City to celebrate and empower the LGBT community.

 

LoveYourself is a non-profit organization that offers free HIV testing and counseling through events and its clinics to reach out to others in propagating the ideas, attitudes, and practices that encourage loving oneself. It is now at the forefront of the fight against HIV cases in the Philippines.
