Pasay City bans men not wearing shirts on the street

Pasay City has implemented its ordinance that makes it illegal for men to be out on the streets without shirts.

This is part of the government’s program to change the reputation of the city which has been dubbed as the “gateway to the Philippines” because of its proximity to the airport.

Mayor Imelda Emi Calixto-Rubiano told GMA News that the updated Pasay City Ordinance 6004 penalizes violators with fined a minimum of Php2,000 and 24-hour community service is also an option.

“Before, sabi nila, ‘Pasay is a sin city,’ but now it’s a travel city kaya naman gusto ko talagang makilala ang aming lungsod hindi lang sa buong Pilipinas kundi sa buong mundo since this is the gateway to the Philippines,” she said.

The mayor added that it will be good to look around the city without shirtless people roaming around.

“Kasi siyempre maganda idisente rin talaga ang aming mamamayan kahit nasa labas lang sila ng kanilang bakuran,” Rubiano said.

The city ordinance was first passed last June but ticket printing has been delayed.

The city ordinance will be strictly implemented also in light of the Southeast Asian Games.

Marikina, Quezon City, San Juan, and Muntinlupa also have the same ordinance.

Not wearing shirts while in the neighborhood has been a habit of most men living across Metro Manila, mainly due to the humid weather especially during summer. (TN)
