Last February 14, more than 140 couples from the LGBTQ+ community came together in a symbolic ceremony. Couple Ice Seguerra and Liza Dino took part in the event with Ice performing at the ceremony and Liza stepping in as the godmother.
In her Facebook page on Valentine's day, Liza wrote, "LOVE IS PRIDE. PRIDE IS LOVE. Spending Valentine’s Day as ‘NINANG’ to 140+ LGBTQ+ couples who are about to get married today in a lovely and intimate mass wedding ceremony here in Quezon City. Officiated by none other than our dear Mayor, Joy Belmonte, this is her way of showing how much she supports the rights of the LGBT community. The event may be symbolic and not legally binding but this gesture by our local government is so heartwarming and encouraging.
