"Dito sa syudad San Fernando, pantay pantay ang bawat isa. Sana sa pamamagitan ng mga aktibidad na ating inilunsad ay maipadama natin sa mga kapatid nating LGBT ang ating pagmamahal, suporta at higit sa lahat ang respeto sa kanila." Santiago said.
For her part, GAD Focal Person Amalia Catacutan expressed her gratitude to everyone who supported and exerted their efforts to make the celebration successful.
"Kahit natapos na ang selebrasyon, sana patuloy pa rin nating suportahan at pakitaan ng ating pagmamahal ang mga LGBT dahil parte rin sila ng ating lipunan". Catacutan said.
