About Taipei Gay Life
Taiwan's LGBT rights are regarded as the most progressive in Asia. With a liberal and friendly population, Taiwan has become an LGBT paradise. Many tourists have discovered the safety and freedom Taiwan has to offer the LGBT community. The annual Gay Pride parade in Taiwan, which is held on the last Saturday of October, has become a weekend of celebration for foreign tourists wanting to celebrate and support the LGBT cause. The parade was first held in 2003, and was the first such event in the Chinese speaking world. In 2018, the parade attracted over 140,000 participants, making it the largest gay pride event in Asia!
On 24 May 2017, the Constitutional Court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry under Taiwan's Constitution and that the Legislative Yuan has two years to amend marriage laws. On 24 May 2019, Taiwan officially became the first country in Asia where same-sex marriage is legal. With the world watching, Taiwan is at the forefront of equality in Asia and will hopefully stimulate its neighbors to follow suit.
