Thousands in Taiwan Rally for Gay Marriage

Tens of thousands rallied in Taipei's gay pride parade today in support of a marriage equality bill under consideration by the Taiwanese legislature.

Holding rainbow flags, colourful placards and balloons, participants from Taiwan and several Asian countries marched the streets in a bustling business district in Taiwan's capital for the 11th annual gay parade.

The rally came as Taiwan’s Parliament on Friday decided to begin reviewing a bill to amend the Civil Code in order to allow same-sex marriages, amid an increasingly tolerant environment on the island nation.

It's time Taiwan!
