Each year the parade emphasizes on specific issues of the gay community. This event is not only appreciated and celebrated by this community alone but also friends, families and those who support them and this cause. Now in its 13th year, the Taiwan PRIDE has grown from a humble gathering of 500 participants in 2003 to become the largest annual LGBT parade in Asia. Organizers estimated that there were more than 65,000 participants in 2014. In this year, the parade will proceed on October 31st afternoon
“W is always a big supporter on gay rights,” shared Cary Michael Gray, the General Manager of W Taipei, “this year, we collaborated with Jennifer Hudson in United States on “Turn It Up for Change” campaign for supporting gay marriage equal rights with a great number of feedback flooded in as a result. In Taiwan, through supporting Taiwan PRIDE parade annually, we wish everyone who lives on this island could all enjoy the same civil rights no matter who they love.”
