LAGABLAB LGBT Network has donated the Equality Champion Award to Kapuso Actress Heart Evangelista.
She wrote a gratitude to the LGBTQIA + community.
"The Philippines has always been known to be a people of love, and I think love is never discriminatory; love is inclusive for all, regardless of age and sexual orientation," wrote the Evangelista.
"I will continue to raise awareness of the LGBTQIA + community rights and encourage everyone to do the same. Let's all join forces to create a Philippines that is versatile, accepting and full of love."
Senator Risa Hontiveros and photographer BJ Pascual were also recognized as gender equality champions.
