Actor-host Markki Stroem seems to have enjoyed immensely his latest hosting chore for the LGBTQ+ community.

With great pride, Stroem recalled his wonderful moment as a host in a Pride PH Festival event that gathered thousands of LGBTQ+ members.


In an Instagram post Sunday, June 25, Stroem posted photos and a short video of his hosting chores.


“50,000 strong! Hosted a primetime slot of QC #PridePH with gorgeous @dragdenph winner @naiablack_,” he said in his caption.

“What a turnout with some of the most wonderful and heartfelt guests including the one and only @iceseguerra,” he added.

Stroem is grateful to the organizers of the show for putting up some sort of a tribute to the Pride community.

“Wanted to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers and ICONS who made this event happen!” he said.

But more than this, Stroem is glad that there’s a new law in Quezon City that protects same- sex partners’ rights.

“Was able to have a selfie with my first co-host @greynelized from Side-B and the woman of the hour @mayorjoybelmonte and incredibly thankful to have witnessed the passing of a new law to protect same sex partners in QC! We LOVE YOU MAYOR JOY!” he said.


“Big shout out to direk @iamrodafrog for this momentous event! Spread LOVE #PridePH #LoveLaban. Happy Pride y’all! #lgbtqia,” he added.
