Mongolia’s Pride Week launched over the weekend with organizers anticipating it would be its biggest yet.

The week started with a parade called the Equality Walk and was attended by locals, dignitaries and expats. It was followed by a concert and parties that went well into the night.

In the lead up to Pride Week, Mongolia’s LGBT Centre held a crowdfunding campaign to support the festivities because they anticipated they would have their biggest year yet.

Despite only having four staff, the LGBT Centre has been a successful champion of LGBT rights in the central Asian nation.

Since 2009 it lobbied for LGBT people to be protected from hate crimes, with laws passing in July this year.
