taipei pride 26

Taipei Pride has long been the biggest pride in Asia and this weekend’s event confirmed its status as a world-class event.

More than 118,000 people flocked to Taiwan’s capital to participate in the parade. That’s the biggest number ever in Taipei Pride’s 15-year history.

In what started out as a small protest movement to demand equal rights for LGBTI people has turned into a celebration.

This year’s celebration was especially joyful after Taiwan legalized marriage equality only a few months earlier.

Gay Star News was on the ground at Taipei Pride to bring you highlights of the event:
