I’D HEARD ABOUT the Taiwan Pride Parade for a full year since moving here in November, 2011. It has supposedly grown every single year since inception, and was attended by more than 50,000 people in 2011. After missing it by about three weeks last year, I was determined to check it out and lend my support to the principles of equality.
If I hadn’t actively been on the lookout for this massive event, I just might have missed it. There isn’t much publicity or press that goes on around it outside of a few lonely articles in local print publications like the Taipei Times. I was floored by the number of people and level of energy in the air at the Taiwan Pride Parade this year, and hope to pass on some of that through the photos below.
