Sweden joins Metro Manila Pride

Team Sweden is marching for equality at the Metro Manila Pride on Saturday 24 June 2017. The Embassy of Sweden in Manila took to Facebook to invite people to come join them in a march for safe spaces, for right, for love, and for pride.

Sweden in Manila is currently running a campaign for equality in the Philippines. In collaboration with Ateneo de Manila University, they are hosting ‘Equality makes sense: A Forum on Empowering Women in the Philippines’.

“We can’t achieve 100 percent success while leaving 50 percent behind,” states the campaign, mentioning that to achieve a lasting peace agreement, both halves of the population should be included.
