ALL EYES ON TAIPEI PRIDE THIS YEAR

This year marks the 13th Taiwan LGBT Pride, but did you know the history about Taiwan LGBT Pride? 

The 1st Taiwan LGBT Pride was held in 2003, and more than 65,000 people participated in the 12th Parade last year. The big event attracted lots of local and foreign LGBT groups every year, and also make the Taiwan LGBT Pride become the largest gay pride event in Asia.  Each year has got its own  theme, highlights and slogans. The aim is to raise awareness about gay rights and marriage equality and also strengthen the community. 

“No Age Limit” is the slogan this year - the line aims to break barriers for age and gender that exists. 

During the LGBT Pride, a lot of activities will be held in full swing. A lot of hotels are offering "Pride room packages" and a number of parties are organized by clubs. This year, there will even be an official pool party at W hotel!

BEAROLOGY, of course, won’t be absent in such a wonderful event. Will you? See you at Taiwan pride this year and see what BEAROLOGY will do for the bear community!
