A Filipino supporter of gay and lesbian rightstakes part in the annual Pride March at the University of the Philippines Diliman campus, eastern Manila, Philippines, 27 June 2013. The parade's call is to implement anti-discrimination policies for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Straight (LGBTS) Community both within and outside the university. Meanwhile, the US Supreme Court handed down two victories for advocates of same-sex marriage, striking down a law that prohibited federal benefits for same-sex couples and clearing the way for gay couples to wed in California.
