To encourage the spirit of unity and inclusion, Lazada Philippines brings together and spotlights talented artists from the LGBTQIA+ community through a series of livestreamed events with ‘Pride is Alive’ from June 23-27.

From a live fashion and drag show to a make-up tutorial session and live ‘tsikahan’, consumers can enjoy a series of celebrations with film director Antoinette Jadaone, writer and actor Juan Miguel Severo, chef and author Clyde San Pedro, Cebu fashion designers, and drag queens Eva Papaya, Ms. Letket, Precious, Eken, Turing & Bench via LazLive and Lazada’s Facebook, Tiktok, and YouTube channels.

Finally, Lazada Philippines also teams up with Love Yourself, Inc., to showcase a special Milkwear x LoveYourself Pride Month capsule collection where all proceeds from the sale will benefit Love Yourself, Inc.’s HIV awareness and free-testing projects.
