Its location on a national highway signifies that this Pride crosswalk does not belong only to San Julian Pride or our municipality – it transcends our local geographic boundaries. It is our call for the immediate passage into law of the long delayed SOGIE Equality Bill. Our Pride crosswalk is our invitation for everyone to join us in our struggle for acceptance and equality. Our Pride crosswalk is our visual reminder that we have come a long way and we still have a long way to go. We are San Julian Pride”, subay ha grupo han San Julian Pride Advocacy group Inc
