Taiwan to host Asia’s largest LGBT parade

Taipei, Oct 27 (IANS) Taiwan is set to hold Asia’s biggest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) parade on October 31 in capital Taipei.

Participants at the 2015 Taiwan Pride Parade will split up along two separate routes after setting off from section one of Xinyi Road. They will eventually converge at Zhongshan South Road, Taiwan News reported.

The theme of this year’s parade is “no age limit”. The 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.

Taiwan is considered to be one of Asia’s more liberal countries on LGBT rights. However, same-sex marriage is not recognised.

A total of 65,000 people took part in last year’s parade, with thousands of foreign nationals participating in what was one of the largest gay pride events held in Asia.
