KAWIT Mayor Angelo Emilio Aguinaldo upholds “love with no boundaries” through the biggest Pride March in Cavite called “Rampa sa Kawit! Rampa na!” this Saturday, February 29 at the Liwasang Aguinaldo Freedom Park.
Mayor Aguinaldo, the great grandson of the former president Emilio Aguinaldo, believes that it is his duty to create a space in which everyone is welcome, accepted, embraced and supported for who they are. Thus, he initiated a series of activities not just for the LGBTQIA++ community in Kawit but the whole 1st District of Cavite.
There will be two major events set. First is the “Rampa sa Kawit Street Dancing Competition” and “Rampa sa Kawit Amazing Talent Show.” Both competitions will be open to members of the LGBTQIA++ communities in Kawit, Rosario, Noveleta, and Cavite City.
Prizes up to P75,000 await those who will showcase unique and creative performance, confidence, amazing costume and props and overall impact for the street dancers. Four entries from each municipality/city are allowed to join the street dancing competition with the Rio Festival theme. Up to P50,000.00 cash is up for grabs for the winners of “Rampa sa Kawit! Amazing Talent Show.”
Celebrity guests Francine Garcia, JM Canillas, Mark Manicad, and “It’s Showtime’s” Juliana Parizcova Segovia will be the judges for the competition.
Organizers ensure the public that they would be taking all the necessary measures against the threat of COVID-19 during the event. Thermal scanners and alcohols will be all around the activity area to make sure that everyone will get to enjoy the event without having to fear about COVID-19.
The event will be hosted by ABS-CBN Star Patroller and Kawit Ambassadress Ganiel Krishnan and MOR’s DJ Jaiho.
