Taipei Pride celebrated its 10th anniversary on Oct. 27. It is the oldest and biggest Pride event in Asia.
More than 50,000 marchers attended this year, according to the Taipei Times.
On the surface, Taipei Pride is not a celebration of extravagance or politics. It seems to be a celebration of the “normal” lives of “normal” people. Whereas D.C. Pride is filled with churches, NGOs and political groups, and New York Pride is filled with hot men on glitzy floats, the majority of participants in Taipei Pride walked with their friends, dressed in their regular clothes.
