More than 60,000 people took part in the 11th Kaohsiung Pride parade — the largest crowd in its history — under the theme of "We! Around You!" in the southern city Saturday, according to the organizers.

The parade began at around 2 p.m. in front of Dayi Park in the city's Yancheng District and marched along Dacheng Street and Wufu 3rd Road, across the Love River, before making a loop back to the starting point.

The city government also showed its support by raising rainbow flags at its Siwei and Fongshan offices.

Mayor Chen Chi-mai (陳其邁) posted a Facebook message with a photo of a city initiative to paint a pavement at the Pier-2 Art Center in rainbow colors, saying that "love and tolerance is one of the most beautiful things about Taiwan."    [FULL  STORY]
