This year’s theme for the 17th annual Taipei Pride parade is “Together, Make Taiwan Better.” The main event of the weekend is the parade itself, which runs for around four hours around Taipei city. Last year saw an attendance of 130,000, and with the passing of same-sex marriage legislation this year, organizers are expecting up to 200,000 to take part in the parade as tourists flock in to celebrate Taiwan being the first country in Asia to pass such legislation.
Running over the entire weekend is a smorgasbord of events, parties, and seminars centered around Pride. However you like to celebrate Pride, be it discussing rights or enjoying an exhibition or party, there’s something for everyone (including kids) this weekend.
The News Lens has compiled an event guide to accompany our Taipei Rainbow Map featuring the city’s LGBTQ hotspots. [FULL STORY]
