General Reminders
  • Bring your own water and snacks for the march itself - it helps to keep supplied, especially given how long the route is.
  • Bring rain gear (e.g. umbrellas, rain coats) in case the weather turns. Unless an actual storm/typhoon hits on Saturday, the march will push through.
  • It might be more practical to take public transportation to the venue given the streets around Thomas Morato are definitely going to be closed and finding parking will be pretty challenging.
  • For those who do need to park, better to park at the QC Memorial Circle or QC City Hall.
  • Groups are bound to wear their own colors. For individual marchers, I find it more practical to just wear white.
  • You can bring mats, banigs, beach towels and such for the Pride Program at the Circle.
  • Official FAQ can be found here.
