Taipei, May 10 (CNA) More than 100 Taiwanese celebrities, including pop divas A Mei (張惠妹) and Jolin Tsai (蔡依林), have joined an international campaign against homophobia and transphobia in support of same-sex marriage.

A total of 115 entertainers recently posed individually for photos holding rainbow placards to show their support for the cause.

The photos will be part of a special exhibition to mark the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17, the organizer, the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights (TAPCPR), said on Wednesday.

Among the celebrities who participated in the photo display project were four winners of Golden Horse Awards (Taiwan’s Oscars), 28 winners of Golden Bell Awards (Taiwan’s Emmys), and 60 winners of Golden Melody Awards (Taiwan’s Grammys), the TAPCPR said.
