Thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) revelers touched down in Taiwan over the weekend for Taipei’s 10th annual Gay Pride event.
Despite all the colorful festivities (which included a spectacular parade), many of the over 65,000 people in attendance said the event had a more serious aim: marriage equality. “The theme this year is to fight for equal rights on marriage. Gay people are also tax-paying citizens and we demand the same basic right as any heterosexual couples,” Mu Chuan, one of the organizers of the rally, told the AFP.
Added Kongpaphop Panya, a 30-year-old Thai resident: “I just want to tell the world we have the right to love equally like others.”
