LGBT activists held a big rally for marriage equality in Taiwan today.

Pink News reports:

Thousands marched in Taipei on Saturday, holding rainbow flags, colourful placards and balloons, in support of a bill reviewing Taiwan’s stance on same-sex marriages. The participants came far and wide, from Taiwan, several Asian countries, the United States, and Europe, for the 11th annual parade in Taipei’s business district. Albert Yang, a spokesperson for the event, said: “This year’s theme is ‘The voice of sexual sufferer’, which was the main appeal for our very first parade. We want to show support for those who are still suffering or being discriminated against for their sexualities.”

The country’s parliament is currently considering a bill that could legalize same-sex marriage.
