Taipei gets ready for one of the region’s largest LGBT events of the year

The last Saturday of October sees the arrival of Taipei’s Gay Pride Parade and Party

As one of the largest gay events in Taiwan (and Asia), Saturday 31 October will see more than 80,000 revellers descend on the streets of Taipei.

The parade starts from Gay Pride Village (Ketagalan Blvd) then moves through the streets of Taipei. Participants will split up along two separate routes after setting off at 2 p.m

The theme of this year’s parade is “no age limit,” and members of the LGBT community and its supporters are invited to take part to jointly explore how age and gender are hindering people from freely expressing themselves in living their lives, the organizer said.
