An excerpt of the post says:
We are officially two years old today. How time flies. We met very remarkable people, we learned a lot, and we have seen how this group helped people find friends and widen their connections and interest in this beautiful genre.
In behalf of the Yuri/GL PH team, we want to say Thank You for being part of it for two years strong. We have stuff in store for you guys this year and in the future. Let’s continue to share the greatness of Yuri and Girl’s Love together.
Matsuri, the founder of the Yuri/GL Philippines Facebook group also posted her greetings to the community on the same day. An excerpt of here message says:
2 years ago, it was just a wishful thought of mine.
But now, seeing how the group expands and has an ability to create events for the members is making me happy. I never thought that there are lots of Yuri fans out there, in this country rather, and I’m glad to know that lots of people appreciates the art and the beauty of ‘Girl’s Love’.
As of this time, the group has not released any announcements of their next gigs but stated to follow their official Facebook Page and Twitter for announcements. The group recently attended ELBIKON 2019 which was held in the University of the Philippines Los Baños last February.
Two years strong, Yuri/GL PH continues to be the most active yuri and girl’s love community in the Philippines and they are hoping to partner with various groups and institutions to organize more events (and hopefully a convention dedicated to Yuri and Girl’s Love) in the future.
