November 28: #RainbowConnection Demystifying the LGBT Market

The Philippines is considered as one of the many countries that has an influential Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender (LGBT) market. Their presence can be seen in the entertainment, business, socio-political, among other industry segments.

Recognizing its influence, we realize the need for an event or forum that seeks to understand this market segment and its role or effect in our culture and economic development. Hence, in collaboration with Liberating Jepoy, #DPOP, we are presenting “#RainbowConnection Demystifying the LGBT Market” event this November 28, 2014 at Best Western Plus Antel Hotel, Makati Avenue, Makati City 2 PM to 7 PM.

This event is made possible by sponsors Best Western Antel Hotel, Shinagawa, Island Rose, and 2Go.
