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. First is the Rampa sa Kawit Street Dancing Competition, then the 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 P75,000.00 await the participants who will showcase unique and creative performance, confidence, amazing costume and props and overall impact to 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 Showtime’s Miss Q & A 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.
The event is made possible by the local government of Kawit, Municipal Department of Social Welfare and Development (MSWD), and Kawit Public Information Office (Kawit PIO) and in partnership with the LGBT communities of Noveleta, Rosario and Cavite City. It will be hosted by ABS-CBN Star Patroller and Kawit Ambassadress Ganiel Krishnan and MOR’s DJ Jaiho.
