The University of the Philippines is celebrating Pride Week 2012 from June 25-29 with forums and a film screening and a lot of other fun stuff. Join the festivities!
Despite my seemingly happy demeanor, too many things offend me. This is what comes from being an atheist feminist skeptic liberal living in the lovely Philippine Islands. How do I cope, you ask? By taking things in perspective, that’s how. And being charitable when judging people, appreciating them for who they are, and understanding their side of things.
It is in this vein that I wrote this post in the Filipino Freethinkers website. You’re welcome.
What are you guys up to on April 1? We’re having the annual Filipino Freethinkers Forum in the afternoon, at the UP-Ayalaland Technohub (registration is free and starts at 1.30pm). We’ll be talking about the reproductive health bill, freedom of expression, LGBT rights, science, and freedom of religion. SPIT (Silly People’s Improv Theater) will be performing. We will be announcing the winners of the Reason Award, the Science Award and the Secularism Award. And giving away a special Bigot Award (a cash prize of PhP 10,000 will be given to the organization or cause the awardee has p*ssed off the most — everybody wins!).
