With flamboyant & outlandish costumes, drum & bugle corps & floats from Nissan Motors, it was easily one of the most spectacular and most colorful sights to greet kibitzers and motorists alike. Dubbed the 2019 LGBTQIA + Community Pride Parade, it was one of the highlights of the one- day celebration of LGBTQIA Unity Day celebration that attracted and united the active LGBTQ groups all over Bohol.
