About Taiwan LGBT Pride Parade

The first Taiwan LGBTQ Pride was held in 2003. Since then, Taiwan LGBTQ Pride has had one mission: to organize a Pride Parade for Taiwan's LGBTQ community every year and give voice to their rights. 

Every last Saturday in October, Taipei hosts the biggest gay pride parade of Asia, welcoming an estimated 80,000 people each year. Many Asian countries are not as gay-friendly as Taiwan. As such, the Taiwan Gay Pride Parade attracts thousands and thousands of gays from neighboring countries like China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia, just to name a few. This creates a truly international experience, and gives gays from all around the world the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals.


Program of Taiwan LGBT Pride Parade

The Taiwan Gay Pride Parade 2019 will kick off at 2pm from the Gay Pride Village (Kaidagelan Boulevard) then will move its way through the streets of Taipei before returning to the Gay Village for a huge party. Unusually, the Gay Pride Parade actually features three different routes, that all end up back at the Gay Village. The parade lasts for roughly two hours, so be sure to bring plenty of energy for the big day. The specific details of the different parade routes are still TBC, so stay tuned for more information. 

The Gay Village is a lively conclusion to the pride parade, and here you can expect a range of entertainment including local celebrities. The area also features plenty of stalls with local charities and organizations relating to the local LGBTQ community. If you want to experience one of the biggest and best prides Asia has to offer, you need to get yourself to Taiwan LGBTQ Pride this October.
