GMA stars, executives show support for the LGBT community in ‘I Am’ campaign

This Pride month, Village Pipol once again served as a platform for the LGBTQIA+ community, whose voices that call for equal rights and proper representation should be heard.

Since 2018, Village Pipol Magazine — the Philippines’ leading multimedia publication — has been continuously advocating for LGBT+ rights and gender diversity through social media campaign #BeyondPride. For the past years, the said campaign featured local celebrities, people from the creative industry, bloggers and influencers, corporate people, and ordinary citizens, who are all advocating for inclusivity regardless of gender.

We are gladdened by the overwhelming support of GMA Network, through its stars, executives, and employees who participated in the campaign and spoke their truth with us.

I was born in a society in which one’s gender identity defines worth and power — a longstanding issue that affects us all, but not many of us are even aware that it exists. Now, more than ever, let’s recognize the importance of individuality and celebrate diversity in our communities, within our organization, and around the world. This Pride Month, together with Village Pipol Magazine, let us help elevate discourse for the LGBT+ community and its allies. Regardless of color, sexuality, gender, and background, we are all more than capable of showing each other the change we'd like to see in the world. It is never too late to make a change; it won't be easy, but it can be done. This is your chance to take a stand and to have a voice in our society. I am Bianca Umali, and I am ME. Happy Pride! #IAmCampaign #BeyondPride #VillagePipolMagazine
