MANILA – Megaworld is expressing its support for the LGBT community.

Beginning June 1, Arco de Emperador, the iconic 19-meter high neoclassical arch monument towering over Megaworld's Arcovia City in Pasig, will be illuminated with the rainbow colors.

The light display tribute will run for the entire month of June, which is widely regarded and celebrated across the world as Pride Month.

The first Pride event ever was held in 1970 to commemorate the anniversary of the riot that broke out in 1969 at Stonewall Inn, a gay club in downtown Manhattan.
