17th Taiwan LGBT Pride parade to take place today


The 17th Taiwan LGBT Pride parade is to take place in Taipei today, the first after the nation legalized same-sex marriage earlier this year. Taiwan on May 17 became the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage after lawmakers passed the Enforcement Act of Judicial Yuan Constitutional Interpretation No. 748 (司法院釋字第748號解釋施行法). The event’s organizers said that the theme for this year’s parade is “Together, Make Taiwan Better,” as it advocates creating a friendly environment for all. They added that they hope to attract more than 200,000 participants from around the world. Representatives from the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), the European Economic and Trade Office (EETO) and 14 other economic and trade offices yesterday said that they would participate in the event to support LGBTQ rights.
