Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman showed solidarity with the members of the LGBTQ community this Pride Month.

Lagman said that he supports LGBTQ rights to show that he is an ally of the community.

“So what if i’m straight? So what if i’m not gay? It doesn’t mean I can’t stand up for the rights of LGBT people,” said Lagman.

The Vice Governor said that he will fight for them and for equality.

“There are issues where we can be neutral about. But when it comes to the rights of my gay and lesbian friends and their community, i will always take a stand in making sure they eventually have the exact same rights as straight people,” he said.

“Today, June 1, is the annual LGBT Pride Celebration Day,” added Lagman.
