Taiwan Gay Parade Gets Bigger

Over the weekend the fifth annual gay parade took place in Taipei, Taiwan. Organizers reported the number increased from 2,000 to 7,000. From the AFP "The parade reached its climax with a rally outside Taipei City Hall, where Taiwanese pop diva A-Mei was recognized as a goodwill ambassador by organizers for her support of the gay community. The singer, who performed some of her hit songs to the cheering crowd, endeared herself to the gay audience when she released a music video depicting a gay wedding scene several years ago. Despite the festive atmosphere, organizers hoped to get some serious messages across to the public."
