Taiwan Hosts Pride March "For The World" Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Celebrating the 50th anniversary since the first Pride marches in America.

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, more than 500 IRL events celebrating Pride have been canceled worldwide, leaving many to resort to virtual events instead. With Taiwan being one of the countries with the lowest number of deaths from the disease and no local transmissions over the past two months, more than 200 people gathered at Taipei’s Liberty Square to “march for the world.”

Taiwan has been one of the leading places in Asia in terms of being queer-inclusive, having legalized same-sex marriage last year. While its annual Pride Parade usually takes place in October, the event was brought forward in order to replace the canceled events all around the world.

Organizer Darien Chen shared with BBC that Taiwan’s LGBTQ+ community aimed to celebrate the 50th anniversary since the first marches that took place in America. “The whole world is facing the height of the pandemic, [but] Taiwan won’t give in. We must continue with this flame of hope and stand up for the world,” he commented.

To celebrate Pride Month at home, check out our list of LGBTQ+ shows you can watch on Netflix, as well as Black-led LGBTQ+ organizations to support.
