Don't just join the pride - come learn about the history and culture of the LGBT community in Taiwan!
The New York Times once described Taiwan as the beacon of inspiration for Asia's gays. Taiwan is not only the place where the first Asian gay novel, the Crystal Boys (孽子), was published, but also where Asia's largest LGBT Pride takes place every year. The fact that Taiwan had been ruled by multiple countries leads to the senses of openness, diversity and tolerance that lie in our society.
