Angkas, the leading motorcycle taxi service in the Philippines, has officially partnered with Gabriela and Bahaghari, two organizations advocating for women’s rights, gender equality, and LGBTQ+ empowerment in the Philippines.

The partnership aims to celebrate Pride Month through a series of initiatives under the banner, ‘Angkasama sa Kulayaan.’

This partnership underscores a shared commitment to promoting equality and supporting the LGBTQ+ community.

Riding Towards Equality

Angkas CEO George Royeca emphasized the significance of this collaboration. “At Angkas, we believe in the power of unity and the strength that comes from embracing our differences. This partnership with Gabriela and Bahaghari during Pride Month is a testament to our commitment to creating a society where everyone, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation, feels safe, respected, and valued,” said Royeca.

Empowering Messages and Inclusive Celebrations

Throughout June and July, the ‘Angkasama sa Kulayaan’ campaign will feature a range of activities, including gender sensitivity workshops, information campaigns, and dialogue aimed at fostering a culture of acceptance and support, especially for passengers and bikers in the MC taxi industry.

Angkas will also deploy motorcycles and offer discounted rides to Pride events, facilitating broader participation.

Gabriela Rep. Arlene Brosas highlighted the importance of the partnership, stating, “This collaboration with Angkas is a significant step towards promoting inclusivity and equality. It highlights the need to support the LGBTQ+ community and ensures that their voices are heard and respected.”

A Vision for Inclusivity

This partnership represents a notable milestone for Angkas and sets a precedent within the transportation sector. The initiative aims to inspire other companies to advocate for equality and inclusivity actively.

As festivities commence, Angkas’ message is clear: inclusivity is a practice, not just an ideal.
Royeca added, “Together, we ride towards a future where love knows no boundaries, and every individual is free to be their true self.”

With this collaboration, Angkas, Gabriela and Bahaghari aim to make a significant impact during Pride Month, promoting a message of equality and celebrating diversity.
