This year, Taiwan’s pride events serve a great purpose in our community. Through back-to-back pride celebrations in the country, Taiwan is creating queer awareness and is likely to become the first Asian nation with marriage equality.

Taipei hosted gay pride first in October and coronated its Mr. Gay Taiwan, Touya Xiao, as its representative for the upcoming Mr. Gay World competition. Hornet, the world’s second biggest gay social network app, sponsored the pageant and is proud to be part of this community in advocating marriage equality.

The lesser known city of Kaohsiung also held its pride event in late November, marking seven years of celebration with a record turnout to support gay marriage.

Kaohsiung’s pride rivals Taipei’s festivities. In case you missed it, though, here is a gallery of images from this year’s celebration:
