Lagman attends year-end gathering of United Pride of Albay


Albay Governor Edcel Grex Lagman has graced the year-end gathering of the United Pride of Albay.

Lagman shared that the United Pride of Albay is a federated organization of all LGBTQIA Organizations in the province.

“It was formed by Albay LGBTQIA Focal Office guided by the 1st SOGIE Ordinance authored by VG Glenda Ong Bongao and yours truly when we were Board Member and Vice-Governor, respectively, of the 13th Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Albay (2019-2022),” said Lagman.

“Happy to note that It was unanimously approved by all the members of the 13th SPA and signed it into Ordinance by former Governor Al Francis C. Bichara,” he added.

Lagman also touted that Albay is the only province among the six provinces in the Bicol Region to pass a SOGIE Ordinance.

“Hopefully blazing the trail for others to follow. I’m sure Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Masbate and Sorsogon will follow suit. We need true inclusivity and genuine reforms in the LGBTQIA communities in Region V,” he said.
