【看英文中國郵報學英文】台灣今年五月十七日正式成為亞洲第一個合法同性婚姻的國家。有史以來最大的年度台灣同志遊行「同志好厝邊 Together, Make Taiwan Better」將於十月二十六日展開，迎接合法同婚以來第一場盛大同志遊行。
Taiwan became the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage on May 17, 2019. There is, therefore, little wonder that this year’s “Taiwan LGBT Pride” (台灣同志遊行), an annual gay parade slated on Oct. 26, is poised to become the largest ever LGBTQ parade in Taiwan as a celebration of the legalization of same-sex marriage.
Starting from Taipei City Hall Plaza (台北市政府廣場) at 1:30 p.m., the parade will end at the Ketagalan Boulevard (凱達格蘭大道) later that day, right in front of the Presidential Office (總統府).
Taiwan LGBT Pride, themed “Together, Make Taiwan Better,” is expected to attract more than 200,000 participants this year. If you want to make some shopping (who knows?), there will also be a hundred stalls, selling cultural and creative products at the Rainbow Market (彩虹市集) located on Taipei City Hall Plaza from noon to 6 p.m.
In addition to the market, there will be a series of LGBTQ-related events including workshops, film screenings and forums.
What’s more? Deliveroo, an online food delivery company, launched a campaign aimed at helping the LGBTQ community. If you place an order on the platform this month, Deliveroo will donate NT$1 to Taiwan LGBT Pride in support of the upcoming LGBTQ parade.
Hotels.com, an online hotel booking platform, featuring the LGBT friendly Hotels, has also launched a promotion of stays in LGBT friendly hotels from now until Nov. 15.
