[Pink Scene] Celebrate PRIDE at O BAR!

I had previously expressed my concerns related to this year's White Party Manila as organized by Mentorque Productions and despite initial comments from the organizers themselves, they did little to assuage my unease regarding the arrangements and the fact that they're charging a full P150 for entrance to the street party alone.

Thankfully, it looks like the folks at O Bar Philippines have been feeling some of the same concerns and have put together their own gay pride festivities for this month as an alternative to the "official" White Party for the year. As is tradition here in Manila, O Bar's gay pride festivities are scheduled for the last weekend of June. And we all know how O Bar can put a good party together complete with dazzling poi performances, hot ledge dancers and fabulous drag queens, so this is bound to be good!

For those traditionalists who feel that no Pride celebration is complete celebrating at Malate, pretty much the heart of the gay scene in Metro Manila, then O Bar Malate will have a Pre-White Party celebration on June 29, 2012! Bar entrance will be FREE before 12 midnight and they've promised additional promotions on the night itself!

And for Saturday itself, the gay pride celebrations make their way to O Bar Ortigas with an official Pride 2012 on June 30, 2012! Details haven't been released in terms of the entrance rates for the night, but I'm sure that they are going to be some great deals as well that should ensure more folks can join in the celebrations and marking how important gay pride is!

So now you know where I'm going to be celebrating Gay Pride - feel free to join us for the fun! And should you see me or either of my partners, feel free to say hello so we can toast a glass to the joys of LGBT PRIDE in the Philippines!

  1. May White Party na, may Pre-White Party pa! Soxal :)

  2. So all the more reason you should join!

  3. The White Party seems like a money making scam and not about building community. Looks like I'll be headed to O Bar that weekend!
