同志交友軟體公司HORNET捐款美金五萬元贊助台灣同志先生選拔賽

This post is also available in: English

上星期六,八萬多人參加了第十四屆的台灣同志遊行,遊行主題是「一起FUN出來,打破假友善、你我撐自在」。這同時,台灣也可望成為亞洲第一個婚姻平權合法化的國家。如此的希望是因為支持同志婚姻的蔡英文女士當選台灣總統。蔡英文所屬的黨派,也就是民進黨,在這個月稍早提出一個法案,此法案如通過將移除台灣婚姻相關法律中任何性別之分的用語。這法案最快能在2017年通過立法。目前台灣有百分之七十五的民眾支持婚姻平權。

為了能夠提升婚姻平權運動的動力以及提高民眾對性健康議題的意識,同志交友軟體HORNET捐出美金五萬元,贊助舉辦台灣同志先生選拔賽。

HORNET與台灣最大的HIV相關非政府組織台灣紅絲帶基金會合作,動用了八位肌肉猛男和四十位志工走入遊行行列,發送五千個紅絲帶保險套盒還有毛巾以及扇子,讓大家在濕熱的天氣裡能保持涼爽。

HORNET同時也贊助台灣同志先生選拔賽,選拔賽的主辦單位和所有的參賽者都支持婚姻平權。遊行結束後,猛男舞者們在頒獎典禮前炒熱群眾氣氛。最後選出的台灣同志先生是蕭賢齊,他將代表台灣參加2017年的世界同志先生選拔賽。

遊行後的舞台表演主打當地的變裝表演,由Magnolia La Manga和Bouncy Babs兩位表演極為出色的對嘴歌唱表演。
